    SAN JOSE, Costa Rica – The Costa Rican government says that a plane believed to be carrying 12 people has crashed in a wooded area.

    Twelve people have been killed in a plane crash in western Costa Rica, officials say.

    The victims were 10 foreign passengers, including five members of a single family, and the Costa Rican pilot and co-pilot, local media say.

    The Nature Air single-propeller Cessna 208 Caravan was travelling from the capital San José to the resort of Punta Islita, the CRhoy website reported.

    Ranked by ticketed commercial airline passenger fatalities this would be the worst crash of the year and it occurred on the last day of the year. Sad.

      Costa Rica is a rugged, rainforested Central American country with coastlines on the Caribbean and Pacific. Though its capital, San Jose, is home to cultural institutions like the Pre-Columbian Gold Museum, Costa Rica is known for its beaches, volcanoes, and biodiversity. Roughly a quarter of its area is made up of protected jungle, teeming with wildlife including spider monkeys and quetzal birds.
