How it all got started: … Where do I start? At the beginning of course! Seven years ago I got married to the best woman ever and moved to Costa Rica. Being married is one of the best decisions I have ever made. After getting married, Elena and I moved to Huacas Guanacaste, a small town about 15 minutes from Tamarindo and Flamingo Costa Rica.
Hi Friends, are you wondering what on earth is there for kids to do in this town. Well look no further, Tamarindo is great for kids and families. I will continue my Blog Post of "A Few Of My Favorite Things...FOR KIDS to do in Tamarindo"
Costa Rica Ranks First in Central America and the Caribbean on the Global Peace Index by the Institute for Economics and Peace!
Hi Friends, my name is Stacey Watson and I thought I would start writing about "a few of my favorite things" to do in Tamarindo and the surrounding areas. You know, even after 20 years of living in this not so sleepy fishing village, there are some things I can never get enough of. So, I thought I would share them with you with the hope that you might get the opportunity to enjoy them too while in Costa Rica.
What do you think of when you think about Costa Rican cuisine? Just because it's considered Latin America, doesn't mean that Costa Rica is the land of tacos, quesadillas, and burritos. Costa Rica's food features many types of cuisines that you've probably never even heard of, let alone actually tried. While you may find variations of it in other Latin American countries or specialized restaurants, there is a uniqueness to Costa Rican cuisine.
Costa Rica has been much beloved as a travel and investment destination by Canadians for years now. We're attracted by the peaceful political climate, pristine beaches, friendly locals, great weather and eco-friendly lifestyle with 25% of the country preserved in national parks.
WHY ONE COLORADO COUPLE DECIDED TO RELOCATE TO HACIENDA PINILLA COSTA RICA
In 2005, we were living in Colorado and Mary was consulting for the prison system in Puerto Rico. A funny thing happened! While she was there on multiple occasions; she felt physically better than she had felt in two years. We discovered that the reason was because she had had a number of bouts with pneumonia which had scarred her lungs and the altitude in Colorado made it impossible for her to breathe comfortably. She always felt sick.
Costa Rica's roads have been infamous for years in the travel community. "Costa Rica is the most beautiful place in the world. . . but what's with the condition of the roads!?" was a common lament among visitors.
November on the North Pacific Guanacaste coast has gotten off to a beautiful start. After our normal wet months of September and October, the area is lush and green. However, we're definitely experiencing the transition into the dry season, as we see more sunshine everyday and the air is noticeably less humid.
