U.S. President Obama is coming to Costa Rica!!
The purpose of President Obama's trip to Costa Rica is to
CENTRAL AMERICAN INTEGRATION SYSTEM (SICA).
May 3-4, 2013
President Obama’s visit will also be to address collective efforts to promote economic growth/trade and development in Central America, immigration to the U.S. and citizen security.
