Costa Rica: a land of beautiful landscapes and an incredible diversity of flora en fauna, a tropical climate and the most hostile people! I truly experienced the “PURA VIDA” feeling here during my 1 month trip across the country, during which is visited the 2 locations of our partner school Academia Tica in Jacó Beach and (Coronado) San José.
