Before European arrival, Costa Rica was settled by various indigenous tribes who were later colonized by Spain. In 1821, Costa Rica became a part of the First Mexican Empire and was also a part of the Central American Federation. A democratic government was established in 1869. Although there was a brief dictatorship in the early 20th century, democracy was restored and Costa Rica has remained ever since, one of the richest and safest countries in Central America.
