Costa Rica’s National Theatre in San José

Teatro Nacional, San Jose, Costa Rica

Teatro Nacional is a magnificent neoclassical building that sticks out like a pure bred among mutts in the middle of Central San José. I recommend a visit to anyone who has a day in San José, especially anyone who lives in Costa Rica. After spending all my days on the beach, in the jungle, or in a typical concrete wall and tin roof building, the Teatro Nacional made me feel like Cinderella!

Weekend in Montezuma, Nicoya Peninsula

River meets ocean

Before I left for my vacation to SC, Julio and I took a weekend trip to Montezuma and did some exploring around Santa Teresa and Mal País. We took the new highway, Autopista del Sol, to Puntarenas to catch the ferry across the Golfo de Nicoya.

Semana Santa in Puerto Viejo

Hand painted signs in Puerto Viejo

The past week was Semana Santa, the most celebrated holiday here in Costa Rica. The Costa Ricans celebrate it by spending time with their families at the water. All of the usually uninhabited beaches and rivers were covered with tents, vehicles, and people. If there was water, there were Ticos. We celebrated by going to Puerto Viejo.
