Hiking in Heredia: Bosque Caricias los Leones

Costa Rica is a country full of rainforests with animals like monkeys and the temperature is always about 30 degree Celsius. Wait, really? Well, not everywhere.

100 days in Costa Rica

100 is kind of a magic number. After this number of days, most people start to look at the time that passed and try to figure out what has changed. After the first 100 days of each presidency or government, we start analysing, how many goals were reached, what politicians did and how it affected the country. After 10

San José- a city of clowns, markets and concrete

As travellers, we do not often hear good stuff about San José, the capital of Costa Rica: It´s dirty, loud, dangerous and there is a lot of traffic. Also, the ticos, the residents of Costa Rica, do not really recommend their capital. Even though, I have thought about visiting San José since I had arrived. So, at the la

Most of the cities in Costa Rica consist of smaller neighbourhoods and every hood has its own church and park. During the past week, I had time to explore some new areas around my place and visited some of the local churches, which were both really different. Mostly there is public space in front of them, like a footba
