Ahh beautiful Costa Rica - a country we would love to come back to. This was not Humberto's first visit, but it was mine, and it was great. Our port was about an hour and a half drive to San Jose - the capital, but it was well worth the trip. We stopped along the way to see some hand painted ox carts, the National Theatre, National Museum, and an all metal church. We had lunch at this cute little place for lunch and learned the local saying 'Pura Vida' literally pure life. We came to learn that you can have a full conversation with someone using only this term. Hey how are you? Pura Vida! What do you think of the weather? Pura Vida! How is the family doing? Pura Vida! Are you enjoying Costa Rica? Pura Vida! I could go on and on, but I think you get the point. Our tour guide was fantastic! He was super friendly and knew everything you could ever want to know about the history of Costa Rica. He also filled us in on how they produce coffee and bananas, and about how the people typically act. Everyone is so laid back here and very friendly to strangers. It is unfortunate that we had so little time here as we weren't able to do much. One fun thing is that we passed by one of the Berlitz centers where Humberto worked for about a week. He was very familiar with some of streets even though it has been a few years since he was here. Overall a fanstatic place. We hope to come back soon to visit.
