Costa Rica

CostaRica

Costa Rica is a such a beautiful country… From sight seeing on the top of active volcanoes (“Poas” is one of several – pictured below) to swimming on either coast, there is so much to do and see! The people are extremely friendly and helpful… Busses are cheap and easy… Food is affordable and delicious…

There is no “Costa Rican Military” because there are so many American “Ex-pats” who reside there… The mentality is one where “if you mess with Costa Rica, you mess with the U.S.” — so far, so good… I’ve always felt extremely comfortable in Costa Rica but as with any country, make sure you’re not out by yourself walking the streets at all hours of the night – always safer to stroll the streets with a friend or two or three… And I would never recommend renting a car to drive through the capital of San Jose… Going short distances in a car will take you 45 min to get to your destination and if you’re prone to car-sickeness, another 45 minutes to recover – definitely see if your hotel has a shuttle before you even have a split second thought of the car rental…

Costa Rica is definitely worth seeing and exploring… Make sure you give it the proper time it deserves to see everything while you’re there…
