Costa Rica Counterrevolution 1919

[ 1919 ]

In time, insurrections broke out against [Tinoco's] despotic regime, which the United States refused to recognize and had denounced. Threatened by US intervention, Tinoco resigned in May 1919; about a month later, US Marines landed in Costa Rica to safeguard American interests there. In 1920, an orderly democratic government was restored under the newly elected Costa Rican president, Julio Acosta Garcia (1872-1954), whom the US government recognized.
