Or is Costa Rica the Country For You?
Costa Rica is a rugged, raw, beautiful country. People travel here to witness nature in its purest state–beaches, volcanoes, hot springs and wildlife; partake in adrenaline pumping activities–surfing, zip-lining, hiking, mountain biking; and revel in the feeling they are in a culture completely different to their own (Pura Vida — Life is Good!). If this sounds horrible, then Costa Rica is not the country for you!
If: you like roads to be smooth and travel fast, everything in a straight line and simple; Costa Rica is not the country for you.
If: you travel to new countries and cultures with the idea that everything should be the same as back home, ideas about how people should behave, about what you will experience while you are there and how you will feel about it all, Costa Rica is not the country for you.
