Budget Long Term Senior TravelEasy, Safe, Fun!
I first came to Costa Rica after exploring Panama for a while. I was looking forward to the central highlands area since that has a cooler more moderate climate. I’ve come to the conclusion that my body is much happier when I’m not hot sticky sweaty. So I am basing myself in Alajuela for a month. I’ll take day trips from there as many of the areas I want to visit are within an easy cheap bus ride.
