Costa Rican praises.
In addition to the general feeling of pura vida (and being away from George Bush's America) we really enjoyed the spirit of Americans working alongside the "Ticos" in improving skills and providing jobs. I can give countless examples of this, including one hotel owner passing along gourmet cooking skills to locals who work in the hotel kitchen. Also, The Beach Times and Tico Times are two online English-language newspapers published locally, and there are several gay Web sites originating from Costa Rica.
