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

Arenal National Park - too busy admiring for any decent wildlife photos

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
