Costa Rica has equalled slothing, gorgeous birds, frogs, beaches, outdoorsing and the ubiquitous rice & beans.
iconic wildlife - toucans, sloths, quetzals - abundant in the national parks, no doubt assisted by stringent anti-hunting policies and enforcement
Pacific vs Caribbean : tough choice, being dumped by waves and invigorated or warmer not so dumping and turquoise.
My three favourite learnings from Costa Rica, first up for yourtown to be considered a town it needs just 5 things:
- Primary School - gotta learn, literacy >85%
- A fútbol pitch - gotta stay fit
- A supermercado - gotta eat
- A bar - gotta socialise
- A church - gotta believe, right?
Secondly, you can easily eat rice and beans as the base for breakfast, lunch and dinner. That is beyond me: 1 meal great, 2 meals doable, 3 meals getting repetitive
And where else as an adult do you get to climb such awesome trees this high
