Costa Rica occupies an interoceanic and intercontinental land bridge separating North and South America and developed as the Caribbean tectonic plate overrode the Cocos plate that was pushing in from the Pacific coast. With subsequent underwater volcanism in the past 2 million years, basaltic lava, dolerite, gabbro and limestone emerged as the landmass natural bridge between North and South America.
