I have dreamed of coming to Costa Rica most of my life.  I think I was in elementary school when I did a project n the country.

Costa Rica.  

No Tramitadores at the border.  

Clean.  Spectacular beaches in the north.  

Unbelievably green in the interior.  

Banana plantations everywhere.

Monkeys swinging over the highway.



I am less than an hour from the Panama border, on the Caribbean side.

    1. Hi Kenya,
      We hit the border to Panama, looked across, but decided we did not want to cross yet another border. Panama was our endpoint anyway. Our 2 girls arrive tonight for a visit for a week with us in Costa Rica. We will start to head back to Canada after they fly home. We did not feel anything from the earthquake here at all. We hope to make a stop in El Salvador on the way back if your parents are still there.

      Thanks for checking in,


    1. It’s a beauty way to go…. We officially have turned around. We looked at the Panama border and I threw a rock across. Kids are here with us now. They fly home on the weekend, then we will start heading north very quickly.

      To BC…
