Living in Costa Rica 

Living in Costa Rica

July 16, 2012

As owners of Costa Rica Rios we live and work in Costa Rica 365 days a year and what a great place it is to live.

Our two children were born here and are 100% Ticos. Having not grown up bilingual ourselves it never fails to amaze us that we have two wee boys who are equally comfortable in both Spanish and English. Their favorite food is rice and beans and they both go to one of the local schools in our area. With any luck you will one day see them guiding on our Week of Adventures or Week of Rivers trips!

We love the outdoor aspect of living in Costa Rica, and as a family we are always active. We visit volcanoes, rainforests and this week plan to head to one of our favorite beaches in Manuel Antonio. The options are endless.

One of the best parts of living in Costa Rica are the fresh fruit and vegetables. Our little town has a farmers market every Friday and Saturday where you can pick up fantastic locally grown produce at a very reasonable price. Lucy, our chef, is always down there picking out the best produce available for our guided tours. If you have never tried a Costa Rican mango you have never lived!

We love this country and plan to be here for many more years. Come down and visit us and let us show you around.

Pura vida!

Fraser and Jane
