Costa Rica Why the Razor Wire ?

Costa Rica Security – Why the Razor Wire ?

 

Those that visit Costa Rica and more particularily the city and suburbs of San Jose always ask “Why all the razor wire”.  

Costa Rica Razor Wire

The short answer is that it is up to the individual homeowner to provide their own personal protection in view of the lack of financial resources by the government and the judicial system to adequately and efficiently deal with criminal activity.

I don’t think this is a phenomenon unique to Costa Rica but applies to most of Latin America in general.   As such untill the government increases the police forces and improves the judicial system it will be up to the citizens to use whatever means they deem necessary to protect their personal dwellings.  The result – more razor wire –
