Our friend Bonnie from home is one of the best connected people either of us know. During our previous travels she connected us with people in Singapore and Malaysia and here in Costa Rica she connected us with a couple she's friends with back home.

The house is right on the beach. One thing that will take getting used to is the locking up of the house whenever we leave the premises. There are locks for doors, for the gates, the sliding glass doors, the fence. There's also an alarm to be set whenever we leave. Although there is little violent crime in Costa Rica, there is crime of poverty & stealing an iPhone or iPad can feed someone's ...
