U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is in Costa Rica to press Latin American nations on democracy and development.
Clinton arrived in the capital, San Jose, early Thursday morning and will meet with officials from 16 Central and South American nations at a conference aimed at promoting reform.
Costa Rica is the second to last stop on Clinton's weeklong, six-country tour of the region. She has already visited Uruguay, Argentina, Chile and Brazil. She wraps up her trip on Friday in Guatemala.
