I am new to this site and I have to say that I am loving the community! I am a current student at Berkeley and traveled to central america last summer, most of the time I was living in San Jose, Costa Rica.
Well I greatly look forward to learning from all of you and I hope I can provide some advice as well.
Welcome aboard. Seeing Pura Vida as your post title brought back my great memories of Costa Rica. Looking forward to adding your voice to the great Central America knowledge we have here.
Another warm welcome to Travellerspoint!! This IS a great community! (But I am addicted so I am a tad biased )
Hope to see you around the forums!
