If Costa Rica is considered a small country now, just imagine in 1906! Costa Rica, what’s that!?!?!
So, now imagine how complicated was to have communication with other “rare” countries. For the early Costa Rican philately – postal history to be exact – the most common destinations are the United States, England, Germany and some other European countries. Less common but not that hard to find are South and Central American countries. Now, countries from Africa, Oceania and Asia are incredibly hard to find as destinations for postal history.
Having this in mind look at this beautiful postcard sent to Siam (now Thailand) using stamps from the 1901 issue…amazing, right?
