We’re a group of Expats living in Costa Rica.  Originally from the U.S.A. and Canada, we aim to help out any tourist or new resident looking for information on the ways of life in Costa Rica.

Based in San Jose, we cover evergreen topics regarding living in Costa Rica and we try to cover news stories encompassing the entire country.  While we only have so many people who write for the site, we do strive to provide a “boots on the ground” reporting style and we hold nothing back and try not to glamorize anything.  Sure, you’ll hear about some struggles along the way, but we’d rather give you the 100% real, raw truths about living in Costa Rica rather than paint it as somewhere that’s near perfect.  Like any tropical paradise, there are certain downsides that exist.  However, overall, if you are a lover of natural life, beauty, and happy people, you’ll find that Costa Rica is a fantastic place to visit and reside.

All opinions are our own, and like anything in life, your mileage may vary.

Pura vida,
