Costa Rica has enjoyed more than a century of democratic tradition and more than 50 years without military force. Its military was abolished in 1948, and the money that the country saves from not having armed forces is invested in improving the quality of life of its citizens. This contributes to the stability that makes Costa Rica a welcoming place to visit. Considered one of the most bio-diverse regions in the world, Costa Rica has 20 natural parks, 8 biological reserves, and a series of protected ares that captivate its visitors. 

The Center for International Programs (CIP) at VERITAS offers a wide variety of programs of different lengths in Costa Rica that can be combined and customized for different educational needs. Universidad Veritas is a fully accreditied university by the Ministry of Education in Costa Rica. The program offers a total immersion concept and stresses academic excellence, while enabling students to enjoy all that Costa Rica has to offer. Founded in 1975, the university was first a private school, but is now an independent institution of higher education with over 1500 students.
