You have got the most INCREDIBLE website

Thank you for the most comprehensive and personalized website I have seen on
Costa Rica out there.

Thank you for putting together this great site. I've been doing a LOT of research on CR recently in preparation for our (my husband and I) first trip to Central America. We're very excited about it and I have found the information included in your site to be extremely informative. You are welcome to our photos, should we take any decent ones, once we return. Thanks again and keep up the good work! S.L. Portland, OR

My husband and I are going on vacation for a week in December, and I've been looking for info on Costa Rica. Your site has been the most enlightening and enjoyable.

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

Thanks so much....the map is great. It will be very helpful to us on our trip. If you don't get your money, let me know, and I will mail you a check. :)

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.
