My girlfriend and I are planning a trip to Costa Rica in late February. She's been for 8wks before so we have a pretty good idea of what the must sees and don't bothers are. I'd love to hear suggestions and recommendations from anyone who's been.

(Preliminary itinerary to follow shortly.)

From what I've heard, Costa Rica is one of the safest and most stable countries in this hemisphere. You won't have to worry so much about personal safety there as you might visiting Mexico or Puerto Rico. Outside of the major cities it's very rural, with a lot of dense rainforest.

¡Conozca a Costa Rica!

Loosely translated from my college Spanish textbook:

Official name: La República de Costa Rica
Capital: San José
Population: 3,896,092
Currency: colón
Official language: Guess...

Facts:
Ecotourism is important to the economy of Costa Rica and for the preservation of the country's natural beauty. Ecotourism's purpose is to control the entrance of tourists in protected regions and, at the same time, obtain funds for the continuation of the protection of the natural regions. Approximately 30% of Costa Rica is covered with jungles or forests. In total, more than a quarter of the country's territory has been set aside for preservation.

Please post some scenic pictures of Costa Rica’s architecture and landscape when you come back.

We stayed at mtpalmera.com (http://www.mtpalmera.com) for 2 days, then moved down to http://www.palmmgt.com estate call Costa Palmera. Their website is Costapalemra.com (http://www.costapalmera.com). What a vacation! This was the first time we traveled to the Pacific coast of Costa Rica, and all I can say is that we will be going back-- soon.

The surf does not compare to the caribe side-- it's 100 time better on the Pacific. My Pix-- from La Cruz for two days, then Playa Grande- Tamarindo in Guanacaste Costa Rica.

La Cruz, near the north boarder...

How was your trip? I visited Costa Rica last September. Stayed at San Jose Marriott (Gorgeous Hotel) and Los Suenos Resort. Had a great time - visited Villa Lapas for skyway birdwatching, horseback riding / hiked / and plunge at Bajanal Falls, hiked / bridwatching at Carerra Biological Preserve, and hiked and snorkeled aty Manuel Antonio Park. Had a day in the surf at Playa Jaco.

One of my best vacations EVER.
