Costa Rica for beginners
My wife and I speak zero Spanish and were concerned how we would get along staying outside the capital but Forest made everything easy and convenient for us. He arranged drivers and taxi and even rented us a local cell phone with his number pre-programmed so we could “phone a friend “ if we ever needed. As it turns out, our fears were unwarranted. Costa Rica is a very welcoming place. Even in Atenas we had very few communication issues. And Forest was the perfect host, always willing to help but also respecting our privacy. We will definitely be back! Forest has a beautiful casita and the location is idyllic. There is so much to see and do within just an hour’s drive. Be sure to get Forest’s restaurant suggestions. He has great taste!
