Still, I spent around 5 weeks in Costa Rica with a majority of them being in San Pedro, the university town suburb of San Jose.
Truly, I didn’t really see any benefit in being in Costa Rica over Panama.
I did hear some great things about Tamarindo, which is a beach town on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica with good surf and nightlife, but I didn’t check it out. Costa Rica is great for nature, good for beaches, and can be a lot of fun - but it isn’t good for a budget traveler looking to bang a number of hot chicks.
As you can see, Costa Ricans are not into inexpensive weddings.They symbolize Jesus Christ and the twelve apostles.Another wedding tradition of the Costa Ricans or Ticos is that the wedding celebration is accompanied by lively Spanish music, since these people love dancing to live music.The majority of the “ticos,” which is how the people from Costa Rica call themselves, are Roman Catholic, which is the official state religion.They are also very family-oriented and almost everyone in the family from both sides is invited to the wedding.Ranked first in the Happy Planet index and rated the greenest country in the world, Costa Rica literally translates as “Rich Coast.” It is a small country found between Panama and Nicaragua.
