I lived in Costa Rica for six months from September 2014 to March 2015 and I wrote about it. The blog is in French (again !) but some pictures are really worth a look.
Costa Rica is a breathtaking country. I was lucky enough to visit other countries in Central America and I now realize how amazing the animals and landscapes were back there.
The country is easy to live in and to travel accross, people are friendly and welcoming. It is a rather expensive country (pretty much as expensive as Europe) but it is a young, dynamic country that has a very promising future.
