I recently (jan - Jul 2010) spent six months in Costa Rica. In that time I spent a month getting TEFL certified in Quepos/Manuel Antonio. I spent most of my time in in Quepos/Manuel Antonio but also travelled to Dominical, Montezuma, Samara, Puerto Viejo, and Monte Verde with a couple of trips into Northern Panama (Bocas Del Toro) and Southern Nicaragua.

I can provide detailed information about the Quepos/Manuel Antonio area as well as general information about the other destinations mentioned above. I can also answer questions about Costa Rica in general.


I've been twice and can give you recommendations on cheap places to eat/stay in Tamarindo or La Fortuna


I have lived here for 3 years and have friends who have been here for many more years. I can tell you good places and bad, tourist traps and eco places, good beaches and reasonably priced hotels and guest houses. Property for sale or rent for people retiring or looking for investments and businesses. Just ask me, happy to help!


Santo Domingo de Heredia, in the center of Costa Rica, near airports and excellent public transport, is a good town (base camp) from where to discover the country's fascinating attractions: easy day trips to discover fauna and flora, volcanoes and national parks, and practice rafting, mountain biking, bungee jumping , hiking. The Pacific and Atlantic coasts are a mere 2 hours' drive away.
You may find culturally interesting and reasonably priced places off the beaten track where to stay. And if your goal is to learn Spanish, several language institutes are located nearby.


I am from Costa Rica, if you have any question, please let me know and I will try to help you. Have a nice day!

I spent 2 1/2 months in costa rica during the summer of 2005. I traveled around so I would be happy to answer questions.


I lived in Costa Rica for 3 years and I know alot about tha country. I know all of the places to have fun, (beaches, canopy tour, quad riding, horseback trails.) I know where the best schools are (Guanacaste, San Jose.) San Jose is the capital and is very crowded. Tamarindo is on the Coast and is very small and lovely, lots of surfing and fun. I know where the hot springs and volcanic mud is. Trabicon Hotel in La Fortuna is the most expenssive but by far the best. Lake Aranal is great for wind surfing. So thats about have of what i knoow about Costa Rica if you need more info. e-mail me or send me a message through travellerspoint messenging.
