Costa Rica–United States Relations
Costa Rica – United States relations have been historically close and friendly; nevertheless there were instances in history where the US and Costa Rica didn't see eye to eye. One such example might be the case of Freebooter William Walker (filibuster). Nevertheless, considering that Costa Rica generally supports the U.S. in international fora, especially in the areas of democracy and human rights, modern day relations are very strong.
