You should use an appropriate search term. Costa Rica is abbreviated
C.Rica in the database (cf. explanations at
http://www.hpl.hp.com/botany/public_html/cp/html/db_formt.htm). I got
9 hits (add the ubiquitous _U. gibba_ and _U. subulata_, and you have
11; Missouri lists only 7). All are fairly widespread _Utriculariae_,
perhaps the most noteworthy being _U. endresii_ and _U. praetermissa_,
both of the epiphytic _U. alpina_ group.
I would not be surprised if some of the more widespread species of
_Drosera_ grew there as well. The sub-cp enthusiast may find some
delight in the _Catopsis_ growing there.
Not really much to write home about, cp-wise. Better look for
parasitic or saprophytic plants, or just enjoy the beach!
