We would ALWAYS encourage anyone interested in traveling to Costa Rica to CHECK-OUT the tons of Costa Rica Travel INFO and VIDEOS we have on our sites (links to the right)... and not just our STUFF- but other peoples sites as well, for even more perspective.
*Stay away from sites which seem to have an agenda, such as selling YOU real estate or who continuously promote the 'Costa Rica = Paradise' perception without ever mentioning some of the problems one may incur while traveling and/or living in said, 'PARADISE'.And trust me, these 'agenda' sites are the NORM. Really, there's only a handful of Costa Rica websites that actually tell you the TRUTH about Costa Rica- here's one you can start with (after ours of course): Costa Rica Blogger. So remember, BEWARE when doing your research.
