Why Costa Rica?

Common Questions, Costa Rica, Travel 27 December 2009 | 0 Comments

Warm, clean beaches, beautiful scenery, friendly people, and many outdoor activities, and a slow relaxing pace of life. Costa Rica is a great place to visit. Eco Tourism : Tourists do things outdoors and enjoy the ecology. Costa Rica has no army to support so it spends its money on education and the environment. It is like visiting Hawaii, but it is less developed, less expensive, and more wildlife.

Is it safe? Sure, but of course use the same precautions you would visiting any tourist spot just like any part of the USA. Like parts of the USA and other countries in the world, there are parts where you have to be more careful of walking, at night, and of your possessions.


Driving & Getting Around

Common Questions, Costa Rica, Drivng in Costa Rica 4 December 2009 | 0 Comments

Driving : Probably should not drive yourself your first time here. The Obeyance of traffic laws and signals and changing lanes are not what you are used to. Some joke (or is it true?) that red lights and stop signs are advisory.

Water & Electrical

Common Questions, Condo 4 November 2009 | 0 Comments

The word for HOT, in Spanish, is caliente.  Caliente begins with a “C”.  Water faucets imported from the USA almost all have a “C” on them. 

If you are from the USA, you do not need a converter for your appliances as the condo has regular 110/220 outlets. Your laptop should also work in the condo which has free wi-fi.
