Being Black in Costa Rica

I recently came across a site which in conjunction with American Airlines sponsors a website called Black Atlas. BlackAtlas was created as a platform to bring together and share the unique cultural perspectives of the African-American community in a meaningful and relevant way. 

I think it is an excellent idea
Here's their video on Costa Rica

Heres the problem I have with the video's coverage of the country and options for travel and living. The majority of Costa Rica's black population reside on the Caribbean side of the country. There is a vibrant population there.  If the purpose is to promote black travel why does Mr George not even make mention that there is even a Caribbean side? He refers to an Atlantic Ocean.
This omission seems to be by design as it is the same attitude that is exhibited throughout the country.
