  • National Theatre

    San José General

    There are three statues on the top of the National Theatre. They were taken down and casts made from the original statues, and the statues that are up there now are the copies. I don't know for sure, but I think the earthquake of 1991 might have been the reason for this. In any case, the original statues are now inside the theater The statue of...

    Carara General

    I was fortunate to find two nesting Macaw right at the trail junction on Sendero Quebrada Bonita and the Connector Trail. The best place to view them is from the middle of the steel bridge that spans over Quebrada Bonota Creek.

  • Little Differences

    San José General

    Something that always struck me about Costa Rica was the little, minute difference in things that would never cease to amaze me. Things that you take for granted in normal life – a pea pod like this in the photo for example. To me, pea pods and peas are green. Here in Costa Rica however, there are these red pods with black peas (or beans) inside. I...

There is a web page (www.mesoamericaonline.net) which details other information. I had four weeks of classes and I was in a one-on-one tutorial for two weeks and had...

However, San Jose lies at an elevation of 3,772 feet in the country's Central Valley. Here the temperature remains very comfortable most of the time and locals refer to their climate as one of...

    Costa Rica is one of the top 5 coffee producers in the world. They export several types of cofee depending on the geographical market (US, Latin America, Europe) and the are where it was cultivated (that raised in the higher mountain has a stronger taste than the crops of the lower mountain).
