Topping the list of my favorite holidays, Semana Santa is a celebration during the last week of Lent leading up to Easter. Parades, processions, the best food and mini-festivals fill the streets, and for Costa Ricans, Catholic traditions run deep. Without a doubt, Semana Santa, literally meaning "Holy Week," is one of the most important holidays of the year. Ticos embrace a week off of work, spending downtime with family and friends...[More]

You may think that Costa Rica is only for thrill-seekers and sun bathers, but it offers plenty of options to people of all ages! Throughout my travels across this great land, I've run into diverse crowds of people, and people in post-retirement - in my froggy opinion - are among the happiest. After your children have left the nest and your career has ended, what better way is there to celebrate than an adventure in the rainforest? Here are some of the most ideal things to do on your post-retirement trip to Costa Rica come and hop along with me!...[More]
The luxurious Los Suenos Resort in Herradura is easily one of the most stunning Cost Rica all-inclusive resorts I've ever seen! This new complex sits on a 1,100-acre rainforest, but believe me, you're far from roughing it here. During my travels through Costa Rica, I heard a lot about this place so I had to check it out. From high above the tree tops, I could see so much! One of the most impressive features of this community-like resort is its marina. It's actually the only government-sanctioned marina in the country. Boasting 200 wet slips, 100 dry slips and a fuel dock, you could spend your entire trip on the water. One time, I hopped aboard a vessel going out to sport fishing, and let me tell you, it was one of the most spectacular (and scary I'm just a little frog) experiences I've ever had...[More]

With so many ports to choose from, you'll be spoiled for choice when it comes to embarking on a leisurely sailing trip on the open ocean. Come with me to discover the best places to sail in Costa Rica..[More]
No matter what time of the year you are traveling to Costa Rica, the temperate climate usually hovers around 70 to 85 degrees. I know some of my brothers and sisters would like it to be hotter, but these temperatures are just perfect for me! They also make it perfect for any traveler looking to take advantage of the high seas that lap at our coastline, where you can catch a glimpse of native wildlife like dolphins and whales. One of the most popular ways to spend an afternoon on the crystal clear waters is to go sport fishing. There's nothing better than cruising in the warm breeze to spend a day with a pole in hand, right? Not that they make any poles in my size, but it sure seems like it! Depending on the location you are traveling to, you might catch Marlin, Sailfish, Tuna, Tarpon, Rooster Fish, Rainbow Bass and much more. Although it is very popular in Costa Rica, strict catch-and-release laws make sure that everyone can enjoy the outstanding wildlife and exciting sport of game fishing.....[More]
