Afro-Costa Rican are Costa Ricans of African descent. They make up 3% to 9% of the population. They can be found in regions like Puerto Limon and Guanacaste on the Caribbean coast.
There are two stages of African immigration to Costa Rica. The first African slaves brought to Costa Rica via the Trans-Atlantic slave trade. The second immigration from the Caribbean. Many speak and understand an English-based Limon creole called Me-A-Tell-Yu. Afro Costa Ricans have a literary tradition. Afro Costa Ricans living on the Atlantic coast are culturally and ethnically closer to the English-speaking Caribbean.
