    The Costa Rican national futbol team are mostly dark skin players. I remember them being mostly light skin players before in the previous WC Qualifying matches.

    Cool so they are Harnizo-Triracials. I think the SSA is disproportionate and localized to the Caribbean Coast (really Jamaicans) and the the Northwest (Mostly colonial SSA).

    Didn't you also see that they mostly had Anglo last names? They're Jamaican-descendents

    High IQs are overrated. Knowledge, however, isn't.

    I think that Costa Rica central valley "mestizos" are predominantly european, but in the rest of Costa Rica are similar to nicaraguans.

    Mestizo-Criollo range seem to be the common phenotypes.

    What do you think about Costa Ricans? Are they really different to their Central American neighbours? I don't know, since I haven't met nearly any Central American in my life

    I mean I've seen some Guatemalans, Honduras and Salvadorians, and they looked quite Indigenous.. Panamanians, on the other side, had a more Afro looking..
    From all of these, I would say Guatemalan is the most indigenous, but even then not everyone looks that way. El Salvador and Honduras are very much alike... sometimes its hard to tell them apart. Same accent and phenotypes for the most part.
    opportunities will knock and memories will ring a bell. You're behind the door and it is up to YOU what you choose to open up to.

    The people from Guanacaste are similar to Nicaraguans, they even speak with a very similar accent, Costa Ricans from the interior love to pick on and call them "nica regalados" since Guanacaste used to be part of Nicaragua but they joined with Costa Rica, but in the other provinces like Limon people just look pure black like pgbk87 said they are people with Jamaican roots with English names, that's where all the black football players come from. The other side of the coast Puntarenas people there tend to look similar to the ones from the Central Valley but with a dark tan, they are people from the beach to sort of speak they are nicknamed as porteños lol

    About equality, Belize's Gini coefficient is 49, really close to the 52 of El Salvador and the 55 of Guatemala. So that's false as well.

    About failed states, Belize is in the same level that almost all Latin America. The only countries in a different level in Latin America are Panama, CR and the Southern Cone (see attached image).

    Cheers!
    I love the failed states index , so much anger it generates.

    Being of Central American heritage, I would have thought I could blend in costa rica. But judging by these pictures, I don't think so. Do you think I could pass in Costa Rica or a specific region of it?
