Voter oldest is 117 years and lives in Rio Segundo de Alajuela
Written by Aaron Sequeira
• Other than the century 293

About 83 new voters who turn 18 himself Sunday, February 7, will meet if requested ballot before election call

Rafael Mora Ramirez, 117 years, would be the most experienced voters in elections.
According to data from the Supreme Electoral Tribunal (TSE), the oldest registered voter in the electoral roll has 117 years and six days, and live in Alajuela, specifically in Rio Segundo.
This is Rafael Mora Ramirez, who was born in San Isidro de San Ramón a January 29, 1893, exactly a century ago and 17 years and be enabled on your health to cast a vote, I would do in the polling station 2504.

With the election on Sunday February 7, Rafael Mora could be building 24 elections (from 1914 to 2010) in which it participated, taking into account that at times the legal age to cast the vote were 21. Almost the same age as the free press, accumulating 120 years in the proclamation.

But this is not the only voter who is over a century old, and would issue their vote this Sunday, they are nearly 300 voters who have ten decades and even more. Mora between 110 and there are only three more voters, one with 110, 112 and another with a woman who comes to 113 years.

The latter is Rosalina Vargas Solano, Curridabat neighbor who votes on the board 1888, while the spring 112-man is Jose Apolinar Rodriguez Monge, also a resident of Alajuela, but in San Mateo.

Valverde Cristina Valverde, who lives in Santa Ana Piedades is who builds the 11 decades to his credit, he has to exercise the vote in the 1276 table.

With more than 100

With over 100 years but until the 109 is a significant amount of voters, they are 449 in total, of which 280 are women and the rest (169) men. In fact, the age group most people have is 100 years, which has 160 in total, 62 men and 98 women.

Those who have just one year, 101 are precisely 99, 64 women and 35 men, which demonstrates a tendency for older age groups are dominated by females, whereas those are 60 102 years.

Of these, also the majority (34) are women, while men are 26. With increasing age reduces the number of voters centenarians, as with 103, 54, 35 women and 19 men.

Those 104 are 28, with numbers evenly between genders, in the meantime, reaching a century and five years, are 27, of which only seven individuals are male. Nine people have as standard 106 years, seven women and two men, while four women and one man kept in his back 107 years. Finally, it closed 108 days a year with only three, in this case winning the men, while four Costa Ricans have 109 years, three of them women.

Costa Rica ages

Increasing. By 2050 it is estimated that the country will have 2.5 million people 60 years or more. Is the country prepared for this transformation in the population pyramid? Today, the World Citizens Day Golden Bow , discusses this phenomenon.

Ivannia Varela Q. ivarela@nacion.com
While some snuff chewing and watch the dogs play in the yard of his home in Alajuela Homeless, Rafael Ramírez Mora still out of amazement. The woman who cares for you just remember your old ear:

'Grandpa, do you know how old she is?
- No, I do not remember.
-113 Years.
- How many?
A hundred and 13 years ...
- Hij .. What cachimbal, saith the old man an incredulous smile, while the hat fits.

Like him, 365 people in Costa Rica now have more than a century of life, a milestone was recorded in the last electoral roll of the Supreme Electoral Tribunal (TSE). It is certainly a sign that the country is aging.

As you read it. Some years ago, who came to fulfill the hundred were regarded as privileged. Today, it is increasingly common for this to happen, because the population pyramid is changing Ticos quickly, as evidenced by demographic analysis.

Garrett Britton / The nation
In 1950, this pyramid was a completely triangular (wide at the base and very sharp at the top), because the population under 15 years accounted for 42.9 percent, while people over 60 accounted for just 2.9 percent.

By 2000, during the last national census, Costa Rica had already outgrown this profile of the young nation, because for every hundred people were six older adults (5.6 percent) and in this moment, the figure is around 8 percent.

This is only the prelude to what will happen in the future. Demographers' projections indicate that by 2025 there will be a million people over 60 years, and by 2050, these represent a quarter of the population, ie 2, 5 million, without taking into account this the growing wave of migration. Then, the shape of the population pyramid will be flatter, more rectangular. ( See infographics: "How have we changed" ).

What are the reasons for this dramatic change? According to Luis Rosero Bixby, American Population Center (CPC) in Costa Rica have combined two fundamental factors. The first has to do with the Tico life expectancy, which has increased with the passing of the years. Today, according to data from the National Institute of Statistics and Census (INEC), men live on average 76, 8 years and women 81.3, almost 22 years in 1950, when people died very young.

It is presumed that the scientific and medical advances (stem cells and their applications, nanotechnology, genetic engineering and cloning), Costa Ricans are increasingly living longer and thicken considerably the number of centenarians in all provinces . The same applies in almost all countries. United Nations estimates indicate that by 2050 one in five individuals will have 60 or more years old.

The second factor that has affected this demographic shift, at least in Costa Rica is a relatively low birth rate and decreasing. Formerly, it was common for women to have at least five children, while today the average is two children per woman.

Education, information, availability of contraceptives, female sector raid on the country's workforce and the decision of couples to marry at older ages, means that this trend will accelerate, he said Rosero.

Big challenges. Last Sunday, while celebrating with family and friends for their 80th birthday, Mrs. Nidia Murillo Rojas, exuded enthusiasm for each of your pores. At 75, he had said, 'I'll take care of myself enough to be an octogenarian. " Now that achieved its goal, it vowed to press ahead to reach 90.

Sure, she wants to reach that age in good condition, because, he says: "Not only is live many years, but live them as best as possible."

Doña
Nidia Murillo (foreground) recently turned 80. AVA her friends celebrated.
Mario Rojas / The nation
And this is precisely the greatest challenge facing the country before the undeniable aging of its population, says geriatrician and professor at the University of Costa Rica, Fernando Morales Martínez, director of the National Hospital of Geriatrics and Gerontology Doctor Raul Blanco Cervantes.

In his view, the Ticos have to understand that with the increase in the number of elderly people, also increased needs and generate new paradigms in all fields: political, economic, social, and health. The list of all the challenges could be extensive. However, some are transcendental. Among them, the estimates should take Costa Rica on pensions, as it is proven that the current arrangements are not sustainable in the long term, a topic widely discussed in recent years.

The same could happen with the provision of medical services for the growing number of older adults. "With more elderly people, it is logical to see more cases of some common diseases in this age of life," said Morales.

He refers to conditions such as dementia, Alzheimer's, cancer, osteoporosis, cardiovascular problems, diabetes and a host of ills, some years ago, did not cause much inconvenience because people died from other causes.

To address this reality, the country will also require more specialists in nursing and geriatrics. Currently, Costa Rica has 40 homes (a great achievement throughout Latin America), but the real need is 275 professionals to cover the whole country, he said.

And better care in EBAIS, clinics and hospitals, must be accompanied by preventive policies, with the idea that people reach old age in the best possible condition.

This is where comes in the promotion of healthy lifestyles of those much talked about: proper diet, exercise, recreation, culture, spirituality and neglect as smoking habits and intake of alcohol or drugs, specified Zaida Esquivel AGECO executive director.

Another direction. According to data from Raul Blanco Cervantes Hospital, last year in Costa Rica there were 119 nursing homes, 122 houses, 76 day care centers and 99 community clubs.

While it is possible that the number of such institutions to increase in coming years, Morales says it is urgent to change the mindset that seniors can only be seen in these places.

"The idea instead is that our seniors do not end their days abandoned at a shelter or a hospital, as now, but stay home, next to their loved ones," he said.

But for this to happen, you have to trigger a deep cultural change that starts by letting people see the elderly as a burden, said Esquivel.

Ideally, older adults can live fully the aging process without being subjected to discrimination, abuse, neglect, disrespect or disregard their rights.

The statistics show the drama. From 1997 to 2005, have served in the White Cervantes 442 cases of physical abuse against the elderly, 1,130 cases of psychological abuse and 452 cases of property violence.

To generate a change in attitude towards the elderly, the country has taken some steps. Among them, a citizen of Gold program (started in 1997) and the approval of the comprehensive law for Older Persons (number 7935), which establishes the rights to this population in health, education, housing, security social, recreation and work.

As a result of this legislation in 1999 also created the National Council of Older Persons (CONAPAM), under the Presidency of the Republic.

According to its president, Barrantes Lidieth Murillo, the entity functions as the lead agency on aging and, therefore, is responsible for the formulation of comprehensive public policies that ensure equal opportunities and decent life for this age group.

Several actions have already been implemented that CONAPAM in conjunction with other age-related entities, such as some public institutions, local governments and NGOs. However, Barrantes said there is still much to do before 2050-when the population pyramid is completely different, take us by surprise.

Looking ahead

The elderly of 2050 and its requirements

Don Rafa reminds his age and he is surprised.
Garrett Britton / The nation
If you currently have 20, 30 or 40 years old, do more calculations. It's a fact: you will be part of the 2.5 million seniors who-will-estimated in the country in 2050. Therefore, the president of CONAPAM, Lidieth Barrantes, argues that the phenomenon of aging has to be seen as something lejano.Según her older adults then have characteristics very different from today. Will be more demanding, educated, informed, and technological assets, which implies an enormous challenge for policymakers públicas.En developed nations such as the United States, and this change is seen in profile in the elderly population. Because of this demographic shift, advertisers speak with great propriety of senior marketing and ultra senior marketing, it is common in the houses they live several elderly: the grandfather of 90, their daughters 70.En various states, have created a series of public and private services previously unavailable, such as insurance, pension plans, credit systems, gyms and specialty restaurants, clubs, workshops and courses, sales of ergonomic items (eg chairs rest and household appliances simple), home carers, and television stations, magazines and beauty products aimed specifically at seniors. Some pharmaceutical companies have already launched for medicine packaging easier to open, and some supermarket chains have created smaller packaged for the elderly living alone. Car brands such as Renault, Opel Corsa and others are also following suit by offering more comfortable vehicles to this segment of the population. Housing projects for older adults, are another constant.

The 113 years of Don Rafa

The oldest person who has now Costa Rica

The schedule will not let him lie: He was born January 29, 1893, 113 years ago. Don Rafael Rodríguez Mora, a resident of Homeless Alajuela, Costa Rica is the oldest and although his mind is lucid, his physical health is very buena.No have high blood pressure, diabetes, or anything like that.

Male - Antonio Sánchez Salas (1895) of Costa Rica


Dec 13 2004
http://www.aldia.cr/ad_ee/2004/diciembre/13/nacionales4.html

Men of stories and wisdom

Costa Rican 108 and 109 years

UMAÑA Monica D.
monicau@aldia.co.cr
Antonio Sanchez, of 109 years, and Faustino Vargas, 108, are the two Costa Ricans live longer in the country.

Lucidly recall the two stories of his youth, and can recite names, dates and facts without error. Of course, you have to talk tough, but endangered their responses than those desired.

Sanchez Vargas was born in 1895 and a year later, in 1896. For their retinas have been world wars, civil wars and revolutions. Costa Rica has seen evolve and develop. Day's weekend interview, in Guapiles and Tibás, respectively, together with the relatives who look after them, and these are their stories:

Don Antonio Sánchez Salas meet 110 years. Among mischievous smile animates easily to reveal parts of his life, and even laughs at the memory just prefer not to tell stories.

When asked how many wives he had, laughs harder and says he does not remember, which was about three. "Wives loose a lot," he says, as he laughs.

The secret to reaching 109 years is, according to him, who have always declared war on vice. "If someone told me I was going to take a sip of booze, I said no, because the effects are felt later," he says.

Wearing eyeglasses, a brown beret and white guayabera, smiles constantly revealing a pair of gold teeth.

Recognizes that not sure how many children or grandchildren have also seen any of them or calls. Dona Ana is the only daughter who has taken charge of him for over 30 years.

Don Antonio was a merchant, he worked "flying knife" and had a general store and a bar. He was among the first to export bananas and pensions when working on the railroad, where he worked for 25 years.

"We were 'armadillos', which are responsible for doing work on the railroad," he says.

Family outings in the early 1900's were going Pacayas John Vines, and that's something that Don Antonio recalls fondly.

His daughter Ana Sánchez every day that Don Antonio asks, where are we?, Thinking they still live in their cherished Juan Viñas.

This man, who must be able to whisper to distinguish the words, he liked to play soccer. "Just do not play anything," he says.

He lived in Costa Rica that was lit with candles, moved into "beasts" and bathed in pools. 30 years ago came to Guápiles, where she lives with her daughter.

Antonio now spends his days getting up early, after breakfast, read the Bible, and mark the passages that attract attention. Bibles and has three marks on each other.

His son, Joseph Sarquis, said that until recently went to Don Antonio is still the land behind his house to work the land.

Less than a month ago underwent medical tests, and all tested positive for him because he is not suffering from any disease.

Don Antonio was born in Curridabat and since childhood his parents took him to Capellades, Cartago. Now she spends her days surrounded by people who constantly china. On Saturday we left sitting in the chair watching TV, where you leave with a singular affection, as if we knew of a lifetime.

Alegre
Don Faustino Vargas is a man with an easy smile, good stories and over many years: 108.
ARLEY Herbert / Al Día
Faustino Perez Vargas is within walking distance to where we are. He greets me taking my arm, and asks me to repeat my name. With that first impression, I can hardly believe I'm 108 years old.

The first question is de rigueur, how do you do to reach that age?. He laughs and says "Only God forbid."

He confesses this to avoid boredom, he wanders around the house and sits in the yard to receive the sun. Drink coffee three times a day and appetite still sits at the table with him.

"Idleness is the mother of vices," he says with a smile.

At 7:00 pm go to bed and two hours later give you a pill that allows you to sleep.

With a better memory than many young people, recalls stories of his youth, tells a fast talking and laughing at their own stories. Of course, you have to speak almost shouting, that allows your ear to understand what is asked.

Remember that Costa Rica was very backward before everything, and people were very poor. However, avoids talking about the corruption cases that were released this year, and attributes we are in a leap year.

I asked him what he thinks of the situation of former presidents Rafael Angel Calderon and Miguel Angel Rodriguez, but prefers not to comment on that. He says it is dangerous.

In his early years was devoted to the joinery and construction, and remember clearly that Tibás arrived 45 years ago, in 1959. Previously lived in Naranjo, Grecia and Alajuela.

He was also selling lottery. So he hurried to buy bits of Christmas, 27, 19 and 91. "Before the whole cost ¢ 4," he recalls. He says that at this point, if it sticks the big holiday will give the prize to their children.

A native Naranjo remembers her as a village with few houses, dirt streets were muddy when it rained, and in summer clouds of dust. Remember to San Jose with dusty streets and 35 000 inhabitants.

At all times will help with the wooden stick to make gestures while talking. It is also known fragile, and repeated several times to swim needs help, because you can fall.

His wife was Amanda Corrales, "It was so ugly," he says between laughs. With her had 11 children, 7 of them still alive. They married when she was 15. Amanda died, but Don Faustino remaining, in addition to their children, 13 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren.

Amazed that the hair of Don Faustino still retains its original color, and mixed with a few gray hairs. Wrinkles are present, but not as many as one would think, if we take into account that goes in search of 109 years.

After 105 years it operated in the head to get a blood clot after a fall.

He currently lives with her three children, Mariela, Adolfo and Claudia. Every night, some of her other children looked after him while he sleeps.

He recalls

Don Faustino recalls the strong image of former President Rafael Iglesias and generosity of Ricardo Jiménez. He witnessed it.

Don Faustino was born on 27 September 1896 and today, still lucid and joking, even with a hearing problem that forces people to talk almost shouting, "this neighbor Tibás is serving 110 years old.

He has witnessed the development of the country during the twentieth century. In fact, Don Faustino has lived in three different centuries.

Men of stories and wisdom

Costa Rican 108 and 109 years

UMAÑA Monica D.
monicau@aldia.co.cr
Antonio Sanchez, of 109 years, and Faustino Vargas, 108, are the two Costa Ricans live longer in the country.

Lucidly recall the two stories of his youth, and can recite names, dates and facts without error. Of course, you have to talk tough, but endangered their responses than those desired.

Sanchez Vargas was born in 1895 and a year later, in 1896. For their retinas have been world wars, civil wars and revolutions. Costa Rica has seen evolve and develop. Day's weekend interview, in Guapiles and Tibás, respectively, together with the relatives who look after them, and these are their stories:

Don Antonio Sánchez Salas meet 110 years. Among mischievous smile animates easily to reveal parts of his life, and even laughs at the memory just prefer not to tell stories.

When asked how many wives he had, laughs harder and says he does not remember, which was about three. "Wives loose a lot," he says, as he laughs.

The secret to reaching 109 years is, according to him, who have always declared war on vice. "If someone told me I was going to take a sip of booze, I said no, because the effects are felt later," he says.

Wearing eyeglasses, a brown beret and white guayabera, smiles constantly revealing a pair of gold teeth.

Recognizes that not sure how many children or grandchildren have also seen any of them or calls. Dona Ana is the only daughter who has taken charge of him for over 30 years.

Don Antonio was a merchant, he worked "flying knife" and had a general store and a bar. He was among the first to export bananas and pensions when working on the railroad, where he worked for 25 years.

"We were 'armadillos', which are responsible for doing work on the railroad," he says.

Family outings in the early 1900's were going Pacayas John Vines, and that's something that Don Antonio recalls fondly.

His daughter Ana Sánchez every day that Don Antonio asks, where are we?, Thinking they still live in their cherished Juan Viñas.

This man, who must be able to whisper to distinguish the words, he liked to play soccer. "Just do not play anything," he says.

He lived in Costa Rica that was lit with candles, moved into "beasts" and bathed in pools. 30 years ago came to Guápiles, where she lives with her daughter.

Antonio now spends his days getting up early, after breakfast, read the Bible, and mark the passages that attract attention. Bibles and has three marks on each other.

His son, Joseph Sarquis, said that until recently went to Don Antonio is still the land behind his house to work the land.

Less than a month ago underwent medical tests, and all tested positive for him because he is not suffering from any disease.

Don Antonio was born in Curridabat and since childhood his parents took him to Capellades, Cartago. Now she spends her days surrounded by people who constantly china. On Saturday we left sitting in the chair watching TV, where you leave with a singular affection, as if we knew of a lifetime.

Alegre
Don Faustino Vargas is a man with an easy smile, good stories and over many years: 108.
ARLEY Herbert / Al Día
Faustino Perez Vargas is within walking distance to where we are. He greets me taking my arm, and asks me to repeat my name. With that first impression, I can hardly believe I'm 108 years old.

The first question is de rigueur, how do you do to reach that age?. He laughs and says "Only God forbid."

He confesses this to avoid boredom, he wanders around the house and sits in the yard to receive the sun. Drink coffee three times a day and appetite still sits at the table with him.

"Idleness is the mother of vices," he says with a smile.

At 7:00 pm go to bed and two hours later give you a pill that allows you to sleep.

With a better memory than many young people, recalls stories of his youth, tells a fast talking and laughing at their own stories. Of course, you have to speak almost shouting, that allows your ear to understand what is asked.

Remember that Costa Rica was very backward before everything, and people were very poor. However, avoids talking about the corruption cases that were released this year, and attributes we are in a leap year.

I asked him what he thinks of the situation of former presidents Rafael Angel Calderon and Miguel Angel Rodriguez, but prefers not to comment on that. He says it is dangerous.

In his early years was devoted to the joinery and construction, and remember clearly that Tibás arrived 45 years ago, in 1959. Previously lived in Naranjo, Grecia and Alajuela.

He was also selling lottery. So he hurried to buy bits of Christmas, 27, 19 and 91. "Before the whole cost ¢ 4," he recalls. He says that at this point, if it sticks the big holiday will give the prize to their children.

A native Naranjo remembers her as a village with few houses, dirt streets were muddy when it rained, and in summer clouds of dust. Remember to San Jose with dusty streets and 35 000 inhabitants.

At all times will help with the wooden stick to make gestures while talking. It is also known fragile, and repeated several times to swim needs help, because you can fall.

His wife was Amanda Corrales, "It was so ugly," he says between laughs. With her had 11 children, 7 of them still alive. They married when she was 15. Amanda died, but Don Faustino remaining, in addition to their children, 13 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren.

Amazed that the hair of Don Faustino still retains its original color, and mixed with a few gray hairs. Wrinkles are present, but not as many as one would think, if we take into account that goes in search of 109 years.

After 105 years it operated in the head to get a blood clot after a fall.

He currently lives with her three children, Mariela, Adolfo and Claudia. Every night, some of her other children looked after him while he sleeps.

María Teresa Rodríguez Aqueche Don was born in San Ramon on January 7, 1901. Are the early twentieth century.

It was a great pleasure to talk to this lady, who at 106 years-not wear glasses except to read-not refrain used to walk and talk with great poise and excellent memory. "The owner of the Twentieth Century" as we call it with all due respect, we believe it has more than deserved this title because not only lived this century, but it looks full health in this century. And, with another ramonense and other citizens of other countries, the few who have passed a century.

Maria Teresa Rodriguez the owner of the Twentieth Century
Maria Teresa was a hardworking woman, remember her as the owner of a cigar factory, or purería of San Ramon, located fifty meters east of the Municipal Market on 4 th Avenue (opposite the current Bakery fame). Not infrequently, children, back in the late 40's, we played with that factory workers, who at the end of your day, shared with the neighborhood kids games bat, can, and others. So come to our memory the names of some of them, like Berenice Cordero, Rita, and Urban Beleida Bolaños in those afternoons in the street outside the purería.

For us it was a matter of curiosity to see the cigar to work, rolling different kinds of leaves to make cigars snuff. First used "gut" which were small or incomplete sheets, wrapping them in another type called "cloak" to form "the suit." This was finally wrapped in a sheet of "layer" that constituted the outer casing.

The snuff it brought from San Isidro, San Rafael, Santiago and Alfaro, María Teresa says. After picking and choosing it came to processing. The best leaf color, size and quality were used to "layer. Also used a solution of alcohol, honey, vanilla and other ingredients to permeate the snuff and give a unique aroma to cigars. It was like the final touch, he says. Each had his own recipe, added Dona Maria Teresa. It was also on my own using a pure solution of saccharin, which applied the "knob" or pure end round so that the smoker at the time of cutting his teeth to smoke, feel the sweetness of that mixture. "My brand cigars were EXCELSIOR" he says, "... remember the existence of other purerías in San Ramon, as Don Manuel Retana, Don Gabriel Matamoros and Amalia Murillo Alfaro." He adds, "in San Ramón and Palmares was grown very good snuff; also Puriscal and San Isidro del General" he concludes.

Many ladies were engaged in manufacturing cigars in their homes, which gave the purerías. They were very quick in making armor and then in the end, deftly using sharp blades that are called "keys" to make the cuts and provide the finest finished product. Also used a paste made of flour wrappers set snuff. Then packed in rolls of twenty or twenty-five cigars each and were sold mainly in local shops and Heredia and San Jose to five cents each cigar.

Maria Teresa was fourteen years old when he broke the first world war, recalls details of the struggle of 18 years and lived with Tinoco also the second world war in the 40's. The earthquake of 1920, took his memory and tells us he could see how the school collapsed as "house of cards" the church also was damaged, as well as City Hall, said. It was sad to see so much tragedy and pain in people and in many families. The armed struggle of 1948 is another of the events that this lady lived. He witnessed the announcement of great inventions throughout the twentieth century and could mark the beginning of this twenty-first century. Which path!.

A woman of great moral integrity and religious spirit has always shown great support for his neighbor, surprised today with a clear mind and is careful to talk showing a fine education, was kind enough to grant us this interview.

His life is very quiet, good food, and do not follow any particular diet, its 106 years shows an enviable health.

"Just tell the young people who behave well," he says at the end of our conversation in his home, which is the same he has held since his birth next to it was the purería.

Model. "She is a female model to be imitated, because, despite his advanced age, is as essential as in his younger years," said Jose Antonio Ledezma, regional director of Education and Nutrition in the area.

Ledezma's assertion is based on reality: the little old lady walking slower than in his youth, but almost without stooping.

Cooking for your child and for her, and continues to pat the corn tortillas so fond.

She hears and sees well, and their gestures indicate some strength. It speaks strongly and consistently.

Alertness is indisputable, allowing you to remember, even with exact dates, major family events.

She recalls that in 1980 he emigrated to Costa Rica to save his life and some of their children.

"They chased me and I had no choice but to flee to Costa Rica, where I stayed and I want to die," he added.

Chaves likes to sing the songs he learned in his time as a child and youth.

"I do not forget the music of my beloved Nicaragua, neither of the children I have there," adding: "Two of them, Cyril and Michael, do not see them for 25 years. Do not know if still alive, but I hope to see them before God calls me to account. "

I see a lot of potential in Costa Rica.

From Wikipedia:

"Since attaining independence in the 19th century, Costa Rica has become one of the most stable, prosperous, and progressive nations in Latin America."

"In 2010 Costa Rica was cited by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) as having attained much higher human development than other countries at the same income levels."

"Costa Rica is known for its progressive environmental policies, being the only country to meet all five criteria established to measure environmental sustainability."

"In 2007, the Costa Rican government announced plans for Costa Rica to become the first carbon-neutral country by 2021."

"The New Economics Foundation (NEF) ranked Costa Rica first in its 2009 Happy Planet Index, and once again in 2012."

"With uninterrupted democracy dating back to at least 1948, the country is the most stable in the region."

"Because Costa Rica is located between 8 and 12 degrees north of the Equator, the climate is tropical year round."

"Costa Rica has been cited in various journals as Central America's great health success story. Its healthcare system is ranked higher than that of the United States, despite having a fraction of its GDP"

The downside is that CR has a small population (just 472 000 by 1927) but so does Jamaica & Puerto Rico. So who knows? :)

"Don Tino" as known to his neighbors, is a true fan Saprissa. Really enjoys drinking coffee, being always right "moved" and dressed.

Don Faustino Pérez Vargas remembers playing pool how well the former president of Costa Rica, Cleto González Víquez, also voted for Julio Acosta García, when the country won the presidency in 1920, and decided to support Ricardo Jiménez Oreamuno in the presidential election of 1924 .

He recalls

Don Faustino recalls the strong image of former President Rafael Iglesias and generosity of Ricardo Jiménez. He witnessed it.

Don Faustino was born on 27 September 1896 and today, still lucid and joking, even with a hearing problem that forces people to talk almost shouting, "this neighbor Tibás is serving 110 years old.

He has witnessed the development of the country during the twentieth century. In fact, Don Faustino has lived in three different centuries.

So was on site the day they killed Joaquín Tinoco Granados, Federico Tinoco former brother in 1919.

Naranjo was born in Alajuela, but also lived in Greece, in San Ramon and Alajuela downtown.

It was in 1960 when he settled with his family in Tibás, retired with 64 years of age.

Over the years, he worked as a laborer, operator at the Ministry of Public Works and messenger, a job that took him to personally deliver telegrams to President Ricardo Jiménez.

Don Faustino Corrales married Amanda in 1926, marriage that lasted 77 years until she passed away three, though, for him, this union is still intact.

This old oak tree has 7 children, 16 grandchildren and 19 great-grandchildren. Faced with the inevitable question: "What is your recipe for living so many years?", He replies: "I do not know ... I guess because God willed it so. I do not know how many years will I live, I can die tomorrow or maybe not, that only God knows. "

His life passes slowly and lives with his daughters, Claudia and Maria Elena.

Every day she wakes up at 5:30 am for breakfast pinto, ripe bananas and coffee, go back to bed, wakes up in the morning and read newspapers.

Today, Don Faustino is celebrating ... Will there be enough room on the cake for the candles?

Men of stories and wisdom

Costa Rican 108 and 109 years

UMAÑA Monica D.
monicau@aldia.co.cr
Antonio Sanchez, of 109 years, and Faustino Vargas, 108, are the two Costa Ricans live longer in the country.

Lucidly recall the two stories of his youth, and can recite names, dates and facts without error. Of course, you have to talk tough, but endangered their responses than those desired.

Sanchez Vargas was born in 1895 and a year later, in 1896. For their retinas have been world wars, civil wars and revolutions. Costa Rica has seen evolve and develop. Day's weekend interview, in Guapiles and Tibás, respectively, together with the relatives who look after them, and these are their stories:

Don Antonio Sánchez Salas meet 110 years. Among mischievous smile animates easily to reveal parts of his life, and even laughs at the memory just prefer not to tell stories.

When asked how many wives he had, laughs harder and says he does not remember, which was about three. "Wives loose a lot," he says, as he laughs.

The secret to reaching 109 years is, according to him, who have always declared war on vice. "If someone told me I was going to take a sip of booze, I said no, because the effects are felt later," he says.

Wearing eyeglasses, a brown beret and white guayabera, smiles constantly revealing a pair of gold teeth.

Recognizes that not sure how many children or grandchildren have also seen any of them or calls. Dona Ana is the only daughter who has taken charge of him for over 30 years.

Don Antonio was a merchant, he worked "flying knife" and had a general store and a bar. He was among the first to export bananas and pensions when working on the railroad, where he worked for 25 years.

"We were 'armadillos', which are responsible for doing work on the railroad," he says.

Family outings in the early 1900's were going Pacayas John Vines, and that's something that Don Antonio recalls fondly.

His daughter Ana Sánchez every day that Don Antonio asks, where are we?, Thinking they still live in their cherished Juan Viñas.

This man, who must be able to whisper to distinguish the words, he liked to play soccer. "Just do not play anything," he says.

He lived in Costa Rica that was lit with candles, moved into "beasts" and bathed in pools. 30 years ago came to Guápiles, where she lives with her daughter.

Antonio now spends his days getting up early, after breakfast, read the Bible, and mark the passages that attract attention. Bibles and has three marks on each other.

His son, Joseph Sarquis, said that until recently went to Don Antonio is still the land behind his house to work the land.

Less than a month ago underwent medical tests, and all tested positive for him because he is not suffering from any disease.

Don Antonio was born in Curridabat and since childhood his parents took him to Capellades, Cartago. Now she spends her days surrounded by people who constantly china. On Saturday we left sitting in the chair watching TV, where you leave with a singular affection, as if we knew of a lifetime.

Alegre
Don Faustino Vargas is a man with an easy smile, good stories and over many years: 108.
ARLEY Herbert / Al Día
Faustino Perez Vargas is within walking distance to where we are. He greets me taking my arm, and asks me to repeat my name. With that first impression, I can hardly believe I'm 108 years old.

The first question is de rigueur, how do you do to reach that age?. He laughs and says "Only God forbid."

He confesses this to avoid boredom, he wanders around the house and sits in the yard to receive the sun. Drink coffee three times a day and appetite still sits at the table with him.

"Idleness is the mother of vices," he says with a smile.

At 7:00 pm go to bed and two hours later give you a pill that allows you to sleep.

With a better memory than many young people, recalls stories of his youth, tells a fast talking and laughing at their own stories. Of course, you have to speak almost shouting, that allows your ear to understand what is asked.

Remember that Costa Rica was very backward before everything, and people were very poor. However, avoids talking about the corruption cases that were released this year, and attributes we are in a leap year.

I asked him what he thinks of the situation of former presidents Rafael Angel Calderon and Miguel Angel Rodriguez, but prefers not to comment on that. He says it is dangerous.

In his early years was devoted to the joinery and construction, and remember clearly that Tibás arrived 45 years ago, in 1959. Previously lived in Naranjo, Grecia and Alajuela.

He was also selling lottery. So he hurried to buy bits of Christmas, 27, 19 and 91. "Before the whole cost ¢ 4," he recalls. He says that at this point, if it sticks the big holiday will give the prize to their children.

A native Naranjo remembers her as a village with few houses, dirt streets were muddy when it rained, and in summer clouds of dust. Remember to San Jose with dusty streets and 35 000 inhabitants.

At all times will help with the wooden stick to make gestures while talking. It is also known fragile, and repeated several times to swim needs help, because you can fall.

His wife was Amanda Corrales, "It was so ugly," he says between laughs. With her had 11 children, 7 of them still alive. They married when she was 15. Amanda died, but Don Faustino remaining, in addition to their children, 13 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren.

Amazed that the hair of Don Faustino still retains its original color, and mixed with a few gray hairs. Wrinkles are present, but not as many as one would think, if we take into account that goes in search of 109 years.

After 105 years it operated in the head to get a blood clot after a fall.

He currently lives with her three children, Mariela, Adolfo and Claudia. Every night, some of her other children looked after him while he sleeps.

Don Faustino Pérez Vargas remembers playing pool how well the former president of Costa Rica, Cleto González Víquez, also voted for Julio Acosta García, when the country won the presidency in 1920, and decided to support Ricardo Jiménez Oreamuno in the presidential election of 1924 .

He recalls

Don Faustino recalls the strong image of former President Rafael Iglesias and generosity of Ricardo Jiménez. He witnessed it.

Don Faustino was born on 27 September 1896 and today, still lucid and joking, even with a hearing problem that forces people to talk almost shouting, "this neighbor Tibás is serving 110 years old.

He has witnessed the development of the country during the twentieth century. In fact, Don Faustino has lived in three different centuries.

So was on site the day they killed Joaquín Tinoco Granados, Federico Tinoco former brother in 1919.

Naranjo was born in Alajuela, but also lived in Greece, in San Ramon and Alajuela downtown.

It was in 1960 when he settled with his family in Tibás, retired with 64 years of age.

Over the years, he worked as a laborer, operator at the Ministry of Public Works and messenger, a job that took him to personally deliver telegrams to President Ricardo Jiménez.

Don Faustino Corrales married Amanda in 1926, marriage that lasted 77 years until she passed away three, though, for him, this union is still intact.

This old oak tree has 7 children, 16 grandchildren and 19 great-grandchildren. Faced with the inevitable question: "What is your recipe for living so many years?", He replies: "I do not know ...

Men of stories and wisdom

Costa Rican 108 and 109 years

UMAÑA Monica D.
monicau@aldia.co.cr
Antonio Sanchez, of 109 years, and Faustino Vargas, 108, are the two Costa Ricans live longer in the country.

Lucidly recall the two stories of his youth, and can recite names, dates and facts without error. Of course, you have to talk tough, but endangered their responses than those desired.

Sanchez Vargas was born in 1895 and a year later, in 1896. For their retinas have been world wars, civil wars and revolutions. Costa Rica has seen evolve and develop. Day's weekend interview, in Guapiles and Tibás, respectively, together with the relatives who look after them, and these are their stories:

Don Antonio Sánchez Salas meet 110 years. Among mischievous smile animates easily to reveal parts of his life, and even laughs at the memory just prefer not to tell stories.

When asked how many wives he had, laughs harder and says he does not remember, which was about three. "Wives loose a lot," he says, as he laughs.

The secret to reaching 109 years is, according to him, who have always declared war on vice. "If someone told me I was going to take a sip of booze, I said no, because the effects are felt later," he says.

Wearing eyeglasses, a brown beret and white guayabera, smiles constantly revealing a pair of gold teeth.

Recognizes that not sure how many children or grandchildren have also seen any of them or calls. Dona Ana is the only daughter who has taken charge of him for over 30 years.

Don Antonio was a merchant, he worked "flying knife" and had a general store and a bar. He was among the first to export bananas and pensions when working on the railroad, where he worked for 25 years.

"We were 'armadillos', which are responsible for doing work on the railroad," he says.

Family outings in the early 1900's were going Pacayas John Vines, and that's something that Don Antonio recalls fondly.

His daughter Ana Sánchez every day that Don Antonio asks, where are we?, Thinking they still live in their cherished Juan Viñas.

This man, who must be able to whisper to distinguish the words, he liked to play soccer. "Just do not play anything," he says.

He lived in Costa Rica that was lit with candles, moved into "beasts" and bathed in pools. 30 years ago came to Guápiles, where she lives with her daughter.

Antonio now spends his days getting up early, after breakfast, read the Bible, and mark the passages that attract attention. Bibles and has three marks on each other.

His son, Joseph Sarquis, said that until recently went to Don Antonio is still the land behind his house to work the land.

Less than a month ago underwent medical tests, and all tested positive for him because he is not suffering from any disease.

Don Antonio was born in Curridabat and since childhood his parents took him to Capellades, Cartago. Now she spends her days surrounded by people who constantly china. On Saturday we left sitting in the chair watching TV, where you leave with a singular affection, as if we knew of a lifetime.

Alegre
Don Faustino Vargas is a man with an easy smile, good stories and over many years: 108.
ARLEY Herbert / Al Día
Faustino Perez Vargas is within walking distance to where we are. He greets me taking my arm, and asks me to repeat my name. With that first impression, I can hardly believe I'm 108 years old.

The first question is de rigueur, how do you do to reach that age?. He laughs and says "Only God forbid."

He confesses this to avoid boredom, he wanders around the house and sits in the yard to receive the sun. Drink coffee three times a day and appetite still sits at the table with him.

"Idleness is the mother of vices," he says with a smile.

At 7:00 pm go to bed and two hours later give you a pill that allows you to sleep.

With a better memory than many young people, recalls stories of his youth, tells a fast talking and laughing at their own stories. Of course, you have to speak almost shouting, that allows your ear to understand what is asked.

Remember that Costa Rica was very backward before everything, and people were very poor. However, avoids talking about the corruption cases that were released this year, and attributes we are in a leap year.

I asked him what he thinks of the situation of former presidents Rafael Angel Calderon and Miguel Angel Rodriguez, but prefers not to comment on that. He says it is dangerous.

In his early years was devoted to the joinery and construction, and remember clearly that Tibás arrived 45 years ago, in 1959. Previously lived in Naranjo, Grecia and Alajuela.

He was also selling lottery. So he hurried to buy bits of Christmas, 27, 19 and 91. "Before the whole cost ¢ 4," he recalls. He says that at this point, if it sticks the big holiday will give the prize to their children.

A native Naranjo remembers her as a village with few houses, dirt streets were muddy when it rained, and in summer clouds of dust. Remember to San Jose with dusty streets and 35 000 inhabitants.

At all times will help with the wooden stick to make gestures while talking. It is also known fragile, and repeated several times to swim needs help, because you can fall.

His wife was Amanda Corrales, "It was so ugly," he says between laughs. With her had 11 children, 7 of them still alive. They married when she was 15. Amanda died, but Don Faustino remaining, in addition to their children, 13 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren.

Amazed that the hair of Don Faustino still retains its original color, and mixed with a few gray hairs. Wrinkles are present, but not as many as one would think, if we take into account that goes in search of 109 years.

After 105 years it operated in the head to get a blood clot after a fall.

He currently lives with her three children, Mariela, Adolfo and Claudia. Every night, some of her other children looked after him while he sleeps.

This is probably what happened here, a mix-up with an older brother (Unless someone can discount this possibility)

- OR the other question one should ask is, where there consistent reports of survival until age 117?

Otherwise, great work so far!

María Teresa Rodríguez Aqueche Don was born in San Ramon on January 7, 1901. Are the early twentieth century.

It was a great pleasure to talk to this lady, who at 106 years-not wear glasses except to read-not refrain used to walk and talk with great poise and excellent memory. "The owner of the Twentieth Century" as we call it with all due respect, we believe it has more than deserved this title because not only lived this century, but it looks full health in this century. And, with another ramonense and other citizens of other countries, the few who have passed a century.

Maria Teresa Rodriguez the owner of the Twentieth Century
Maria Teresa was a hardworking woman, remember her as the owner of a cigar factory, or purería of San Ramon, located fifty meters east of the Municipal Market on 4 th Avenue (opposite the current Bakery fame). Not infrequently, children, back in the late 40's, we played with that factory workers, who at the end of your day, shared with the neighborhood kids games bat, can, and others. So come to our memory the names of some of them, like Berenice Cordero, Rita, and Urban Beleida Bolaños in those afternoons in the street outside the purería.

For us it was a matter of curiosity to see the cigar to work, rolling different kinds of leaves to make cigars snuff. First used "gut" which were small or incomplete sheets, wrapping them in another type called "cloak" to form "the suit." This was finally wrapped in a sheet of "layer" that constituted the outer casing.

The snuff it brought from San Isidro, San Rafael, Santiago and Alfaro, María Teresa says. After picking and choosing it came to processing. The best leaf color, size and quality were used to "layer. Also used a solution of alcohol, honey, vanilla and other ingredients to permeate the snuff and give a unique aroma to cigars. It was like the final touch, he says. Each had his own recipe, added Dona Maria Teresa. It was also on my own using a pure solution of saccharin, which applied the "knob" or pure end round so that the smoker at the time of cutting his teeth to smoke, feel the sweetness of that mixture. "My brand cigars were EXCELSIOR" he says, "... remember the existence of other purerías in San Ramon, as Don Manuel Retana, Don Gabriel Matamoros and Amalia Murillo Alfaro." He adds, "in San Ramón and Palmares was grown very good snuff; also Puriscal and San Isidro del General" he concludes.

María Teresa Rodríguez Aqueche Don was born in San Ramon on January 7, 1901. Are the early twentieth century.

It was a great pleasure to talk to this lady, who at 106 years-not wear glasses except to read-not refrain used to walk and talk with great poise and excellent memory. "The owner of the Twentieth Century" as we call it with all due respect, we believe it has more than deserved this title because not only lived this century, but it looks full health in this century. And, with another ramonense and other citizens of other countries, the few who have passed a century.

Maria Teresa Rodriguez the owner of the Twentieth Century
Maria Teresa was a hardworking woman, remember her as the owner of a cigar factory, or purería of San Ramon, located fifty meters east of the Municipal Market on 4 th Avenue (opposite the current Bakery fame). Not infrequently, children, back in the late 40's, we played with that factory workers, who at the end of your day, shared with the neighborhood kids games bat, can, and others. So come to our memory the names of some of them, like Berenice Cordero, Rita, and Urban Beleida Bolaños in those afternoons in the street outside the purería.

For us it was a matter of curiosity to see the cigar to work, rolling different kinds of leaves to make cigars snuff. First used "gut" which were small or incomplete sheets, wrapping them in another type called "cloak" to form "the suit." This was finally wrapped in a sheet of "layer" that constituted the outer casing.

The snuff it brought from San Isidro, San Rafael, Santiago and Alfaro, María Teresa says. After picking and choosing it came to processing. The best leaf color, size and quality were used to "layer. Also used a solution of alcohol, honey, vanilla and other ingredients to permeate the snuff and give a unique aroma to cigars. It was like the final touch, he says. Each had his own recipe, added Dona Maria Teresa. It was also on my own using a pure solution of saccharin, which applied the "knob" or pure end round so that the smoker at the time of cutting his teeth to smoke, feel the sweetness of that mixture. "My brand cigars were EXCELSIOR" he says, "... remember the existence of other purerías in San Ramon, as Don Manuel Retana, Don Gabriel Matamoros and Amalia Murillo Alfaro." He adds, "in San Ramón and Palmares was grown very good snuff; also Puriscal and San Isidro del General" he concludes.

Many ladies were engaged in manufacturing cigars in their homes, which gave the purerías. They were very quick in making armor and then in the end, deftly using sharp blades that are called "keys" to make the cuts and provide the finest finished product. Also used a paste made of flour wrappers set snuff. Then packed in rolls of twenty or twenty-five cigars each and were sold mainly in local shops and Heredia and San Jose to five cents each cigar.

This article confirms that Mrs Aqueche was born on 7 January 1901!

I wouldn't say that it confirms that she was born in 1901, but it does indicate that she claims to have been born in 1901.
