This past weekend a friend of mine was visiting from the U.S. and of course wanted to bring back some great souvenirs to her friends and family that were unique to Costa Rica.  After spending a good while searching on the internet, I decided to ask a few Ticos instead- all of which pointed me in the same direction, to San Jose’s Mercado Artesania.

Looking for something adventurous to do this weekend? White water rafting in rainy season rivers might just be your thing.

Halloween is tradition that seems to have found its way into Costa Rica.  Trick or treating is not usually part of the festivities here, however Costa Rica’s youth still seem to take advantage of this ghoulish holiday to dress up in a variety of costumes, anything from angels to demons, and pirates to witches.  Nevertheless, Costa Rica has its own tales of horror and ghostly things. 

It’s all about the basics when you’re cooking Costa Rican food- staple ingredients like proteins, carbohydrates, and vegetables are all beautifully combined on one plate.  It is easy to fall in love with all of the amazing dishes that Costa Ricans prepare in their everyday lives. 

If you're planning to travel to Costa Rica this winter, take advantage of some offers from lesser-known airfare websites!  When booking your ticket, remember that Juan Santamaria (SJO-International Airport in San Jose) is closer to the Heredia campus and that the international airport in Liberia (LIR) is closer to our beach campus in Samara.
