Living in Costa Rica:  Exploring the Beaches of Costa Rica

By Vanessa Morson- Costa Rica has for years been denounced as a bad place to invest or visit.  This is just not true.  It is my favorite country in the region and the people are nice and realistic.  They know tourism and have been at it for years so that quality of the service in Costa Rica is much higher than in the other countries of Central America.  And the weather is the best as well as the beaches.  If you want to visit a country where you know you are going to have a good time try out Costa Rica.

A Night at the Cantina:  Pavones, Costa Rica

By Allan Weisbecker- For laid back mood, beaches and fun, few countries can touch Costa Rica.  Everyone takes shots at the country, too expensive, too tramples on, too difficult to live in.  It is all crap.  If you want to enjoy Costa Rica head south to the border with Panama and sit back and enjoy what Las Pavones has to offer.
