Ok….we all know that it is NOT MANDATORY to learn how to dance before you visit Costa Rica.  Nor is it of the utmost of importance to learn Spanish.  A rhythmless, English-only-speaking person will get along fine in this beautiful country just being a Gringo/Gringa!  You will still enjoy the wonder and awe of ‘Pura Vida’ and the colors will be brilliant and the sounds of the jungle will amaze you!

With that said….why not make it a point to Learn Spanish…just a little…and Learn How to Salsa!  Here’s the link…start now and in no time, you’ll feel like you were born in Central America and have been doing it for years!  http://tinyurl.com/y7zd2dzo

After you practice for a while and before touching down in San Jose, take an hour or two and Google,

“Where to dance Salsa in San Jose, Costa Rica”.

You’re going to enjoy your time here in Costa Rica…and looking out from the dance floor, it will feel that much more amazing!

Spanish is Not Totally Necessary if You Visit Costa Rica, but It Sure Does Make it Lots More Fun!

 

 

It was a no-brainer for me.  If I was to visit and finally live in Costa Rica, I was going to learn the language.  Costa Rica is certainly American/English friendly and I have friends who have lived here for over 10 years and they still don’t know a word of Spanish.

However, I would recommend getting the hang of it.  You’ll have a much better time and you’ll enjoy yourself so much more, communicating with everyone at every corner!

Here is an excellent website that will get you there quickly…

Our Jungles are a MUST SEE, but Please Don’t Forget About Visiting our Fascinating Towns

 

 

We have to admit that most people who first have an idea to visit Costa Rica will learn of the thousands of butterfly varieties, the many volcanos, the coffee plantations, the beaches and the dozens of national parks which dot the entire country!

Don’t forget about the cities and towns…the hustle and bustle has a rhythm to it.  San Jose, San Isidro, all of the beach and mountain towns with so much culture, food and friendly smiles to offer you and your family.

Take some time to look at a map of Costa Rica and simply google some of the towns and cities you see on the map in front of you.

I know that you will want to make them front and center when you visit this amazing country in Central America.

A “Pura Vida” Lifestyle Here in Costa Rica. . .

 

When you step off your plane when first arriving at the Juan Santamaria International Airport in Alejuela, just north of Costa Rica’s capital, San Jose, you’re going to feel it!

If you don’t, you’re not breathing!

Friendly faces welcome you and filled with anticipation…not quite sure where you are now…you continue on towards your

New Day in Paradise!

Grab a cab and proceed to your rental car pickup and/or hotel. Getting hungry yet?  Stop at one of the many sodas (diners) and try to order something good in Spanish from the server!

You’ll feel it now.  You’re immersed in the real deal. . .Costa Rica!

Whether you’re in the jungle, far away from the city life, or perhaps you are doing a city walk in downtown San Jose. . .let it go and get into the moment.  If you feel the Pura Vida coming at you full force, you’re hooked.

If not, leave early and go back home to Topeka!

Hope you feel it!  I bet you will!

Get to Living in Southern Costa Rica!

 

 

A vacation in Costa Rica such a special adventure. With more biodiversity than all of North America in an area the size of West Virginia, Costa Rica is jam packed with things to do. From the volcanos to the beaches, there is something for everyone. In the Southern Pacific Zone, you’ll find some of the most untouched rain forest left in the country. It is some of the most biodiverse landscape on the planet and offers amazing adventures for animal and nature-loving people. Take a zipline tour of the rainforest canopy with Osa Canopy Tour or go whitewater rafting on one of the 3 rivers in the area that offer good rafting. If you are into seeing monkeys and other animals, schedule a hiking tour of Corcovado National Park or in our own private rain forest reserve. Bird watchers will be blown away by the number of birds they will see in our area. The Osa area is a birding paradise and you will be able to see all of the birds, plants and animals Costa Rica has to offer.

There is also kayaking on the ocean, surfing, horseback riding, river tubing, canyoning, cultural tours of the local indigenous people, known as the Boruca Indians, and many other tours in the area to enjoy. Our goal is to help you get the most for your money while you are visiting Costa Rica. We know many of the best places in the country to visit and the lodging and tours that are the best in the area. At Osa Mountain Village, we have relationships with other resorts, boutique hotels and tour operators all over the country and can help you plan a trip that will be remembered for years to come.

A Quick Visit to a Wonderful Mountain Community in Southern Costa Rica

 

My boyfriend and I stayed at OSA Mountain Village for 3 nights (1 in the jungle and 2 in a villa) and thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it. Honestly, our friends who live in Uvita had suggested it, but we really didn’t know what to expect. It was more of a community than a “resort”. Everyone treated us like family right from the beginning and we felt safe and welcomed. The residents were very helpful and accommodating to the many changes we made to our reservation. We took advantage of several tours that they can book for you, including the canopy tour, Sierpe River mangrove tour and a guided hike into the jungle to spend the night. There is so much to do on your own as well, lots of jungle hiking to waterfalls, etc. One thing to note, the accommodations are nicely appointed with anything you need to cook, etc, but there is no store on the mountain. So if you don’t have a car or don’t want to make the drive down the mountain, come with some snacks or drinks to keep in your villa between meals.

If we go back to Costa Rica, we plan on exploring other areas of the country, but will probably book a couple of nights back at OSA Mountain as well, to spend time with the good friends we felt like we made while there.
