Mi Casa es Su Casa in Costa Rica

Welcome. Come on in. How was your trip? Did you have any trouble finding this place? Costa Rica is beautiful, isn't it. You are so going to love it here. But it is a little different than "the states," isn't it?

For anyone interested in moving to Costa Rica, visiting Costa Rica, or just on learning one family's take on this beautful, strange place - you've come to the right place.

I share things here like: our crazy family life (I am a small-town girl, worked in the tech business in Silicon Valley, married a Filipino and have three kids (6, 3 and 18 months), strange things about Costa Rica, beautiful images and the messages about how deep-down we are all the same.

I hope you enjoyed your stay and that when you are feeling tropical, you'll visit again.

I have not traveled much at all in my life, so it is inspiring that you live in Costa Rica.

Have a great party!

It was a very long time ago that I had the opportunity to visit Costa Rica. I had forgotten how beautiful a country is was until I happened upon the blog Costa Rica HQ.

This blog is very much like yours, as it does provide a very personal account of Costa Rica.

Your readers may be interested in checking it out. It's at .

You have really put together some great information here. It's nice to read personal accounts instead of some travel brochure. It portrays a much better picture of the real Costa Rica.

I have also noticed how passionate you and the writer of Costa Rica HQ are about Costa Rica. It seems that once you are there, you become staunch advocates.

Between your blog and the other I am now for the first time wondering about when I can get back to Costa Rica.
