This country greeted me with a pouring rain that lasted for many hours, from which it immediately became clear that the most profitable business is selling umbrellas.
Everything is very well organized for the gringos here - tours, hotels, taxis, shuttle buses, a variety of entertainment is everywhere. In general, this country is not cheap. If you want to spend a lot - no problem, they will arrange such a vacation here that it is cheaper to fly into space. Traveling on a budget - okay, the main thing is to communicate more with the locals and experiment.
Costa Rica's slogan and lifestyle is Pura vida! It can be translated as "pure life" (literally), or "life is beautiful", or "live with pleasure", or don't worry - be happy. There are many options in different languages of the world, the main thing is not to be upset, relax, enjoy, look - what a beauty around!
Pura vida is everywhere here - it's a wi-fi password, a greeting / goodbye, inscriptions on T-shirts and other souvenir little things, this is all of Costa Rica. Solid pura vida!
As one friend said, in Costa Rica it is worth worrying about which place is better to choose to watch the sunset. Everything else is little things.
