Christian, France

C’est un merveilleux pays, une découverte et des rencontres fabuleuses. Si, le paradis existe il est au costa rica!! Les gens sont souriants, accueillants, chaleureux, pas stressés, réconfortants nous avons beaucoup aimé aussi leur responsabilité écologique : le moindre village a ses poubelles de tri, même si c'est un simple bidon. Quand nous étions perdu il y avait toujours quelqu'un pour nous indiquer le chemin, et même sans que nous le demandions. On ne ressent pas comme dans d'autres endroits que le touriste n'est qu'une manne financière. Nous avons même sauvé un petit oiseau qui s'appelle « el amigo del hombre » des griffes d'une vilaine fougère!! Read more
