The American Dream Was Killing Us…So We Moved to Costa Rica

My lifestyle has changed significantly since moving to Central America three years ago. One reason my wife Jen and I moved here was because the American Dream was killing us.

Visiting the “Dynamic Duo” of Costa Rica’s Central Valley

There are many places in Costa Rica’s Central Valley where you can experience what the country is all about, maybe too many.
