[I] Miss Costa Rica. Went there just before it got hot in the late 80's and early 90's.
Anyway, wanted to congratulate you guys on that mouseover that shows relative rainfall in different sectors around the country. It is rare that I see something new on the net, especially from the smaller sites (e.g. - versus Amazon, Yahoo, etc).
Keep up the great work!

Do you publish maps for any other countries? You certainly should. A map format like yours is a real gem!...so helpful for amenities and attractions along the way… Your format is so unique, it should be copyrighted.
Keep up the great work!



I just wanted to let you know how much I have appreciated your website.  I am moving to Costa Rica in January to teach English in a rural primary school, and your website has been almost the sole source I have consulted in researching my soon-to-be home (and certainly the most useful). 
Keep up the good work.

I am planning a trip to Costa Rica in September and was surprised out difficult it is to find comprehensive information on the Internet. Thank you for creating a site, that isn't trying to sell something, and provides a great deal of information!
