Costa Rica

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.
