The REAL Costa Rica!

Ξ September 6th, 2005 | → 4 Comments | ∇ Costa Rica |

When I moved to Costa Rica, I was just amazed at the vast amount of horse pucky about this country.

I met 75 year old couples who had been told they needed to get typhoid shots to visit Costa Rica. I met others who were taking quinine for the non-existent malaria. Other told me about how the water here will make you sick. Then, after I lived here a while… I found that there are things that people really DO need to know, but are never told of. So, I decided to do something about the mis-information.

Last week, I published a web site that I have been building for almost three years. I have spent just less than 3,000 hours of work building it. It contains several hundred pages, tens of thousands of links, photos and references, and is, as far as I know, the only totally accurate web site about Costa Rica in existence. I recommend it to anyone who plans to visit, vacation, live in, or retire to Costa Rica.

I call it: The Real Costa Rica. Enjoy!

    Hi there! Love your site, I used to live there in Heredia and miss it very much. What do you think of next year’s presidential elections? What’s the political climate like there right now?

    Far better than any other site that talks about Costa Rica… I’ll post about it later this week on my blog, if you don’t mind.
