Known for its global-leading eco-tourism offerings, the Latin American country of Costa Rica has accomplished an even greater feat: In 1949 it abolished its army and now uses money that it would otherwise use on defense forces to fund a national education system that provides its residents with a free and mandatory education, a system which offers Costa Ricans with a very high level of training. This article discusses the evolution of this education system and the advantages it offers its Costa Ricans, advantages that include Latin America's most rigorous, advanced-level training programs in project management as well as the region's most successful annual congresses.
