I loved it so much I ended up deciding to live there for 2.5 years. Incredible! You must go at least once in your life ❤❤❤

So gorgeous and everyone is very nice. Most people speak English and the dogs there know how to cross the street using the traffic lights. Also the dogs are pretty friendly. Really far from the beaches tho

San Jose traffic is horrible worst than Los Angeles and New York put together! The pedestrians walk in front of your car. you are driving with buses, bikes, mopads, trucks. The 2 lane oneway streets are easily turned into 3 oneway lanes. Don't even attempt to look for parking.

Love love love Costa Rica. Have been there a few times. Once for two weeks for a mission trip. Very humid, but a great country. Once considered getting a beach house there.
