Hi Julia, 

Costa Rica is Le Costa Rica in French and it is masculine so you will say 

J'habite au Costa Rica

I wrongly believed that C R was an island and would have said à but on research, it is definitely masculine and not an island.

Take a look at this tourism page - Quand partir au Costa Rica :

Bonne Continuation !
