Tamarindo Beach – Costa Rica

Living in Tamarindo

Living in Costa Rica takes a spirit of adventure, a good sense of humor and lots of patience. Most people see themselves lounging all day in a hammock by the sea, plucking bananas off the trees and going for frequent dips in the crystal clear waters. While all that is very do-able, it is not what every day life will be like. Red tape is a big part of life in Costa Rica. A simple thing like renewing a drivers license can take all day, today usually means tomorrow and tomorrow may not be this week. If you think you can handle all this with a smile then Costa Rica may just be the place for you. After all, it boasts a 94% literacy rate, friendly people, exquisite nature, warm climate year round and is labeled the ‘Happiest Place on Earth‘.
