The World Cup Draw for soccer in Brazil 2014 is officially over, and Costa Rica finds itself in the dangerous Group D with European powerhouses Italy and England, and South American juggernaut Uruguay. Though Group G (where the US was placed) is widely considered the ‘Group of Death’, the Ticos certainly won’t feel lucky to be grouped with such stiff competition. It will, however, make for an incredible summer adventure in Costa Rica.
Traveling to a soccer-crazed nation like Costa Rica during a World Cup summer is an experience like no other. National pride is at an all-time high. Towns and cities bloom into vibrant communities, and entire nations gasp, rejoice and cry as one at the mercy of “the beautiful game.” Whether you watch La Sele play on TV in a breezy beachside bar, in a packed plaza that projects the game on a big screen, or in the home of a friendly Tico, you can be sure that the whole country will be watching alongside you.
Costa Rica failed to qualify for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, and now it takes great pride in the fact that their in-form national team made it through to Brazil 2014 in dominating fashion. One of only two Central American teams to qualify, as Honduras is also competing, Los Ticos will be the proud ambassadors of their continent and culture on a global stage. It will undoubtedly be an amazing summer to join in the adventure.
