A Return to Costa Rica’s Pura Vida: Field Notes from a Tropical Paradise . . .
There’s talk of a snowstorm to greet the first day of spring back home in New England. Cruel, and yet, it seems so far away, now that I’ve shed my snowshoes and winter wool in favor of flip flops and a bikini. How wondrous, to be lifted far above the chilly clouds and, in a few short hours, to peek down upon a tropical paradise. I’m absorbing the beauty with all five senses: tasting, smelling, touching, listening and above all seeing all that this place has to offer. It’s pura vida. . . And I am living the good life in Costa Rica, once again . . .
Currently exploring the Caribbean Coast and south-central mountains of Costa Rica along the Panama border, I will attempt to post more glimpses of this Central American paradise whenever an internet connection allows. Hasta luego! Â
