Record year for murders in Costa Rica

Monday, December 14, 2015

Costa Rica is seeing off 2015 as the most violent year in its history with at least 528 homicides to date, one more than the previous record established in 2010.

Costa Rica has historically maintained a homicide rate lower than 10 out of every 10,000 inhabitants, but according to official projections, 2015 will end with murders above and beyond that number.
