Christmas season is here in Costa Rica! There is a lot going on in our town of Atenas, and all over the capital city of San José. So get your Santa hat and merry spirit ready, and let the rhythm of Christmas in Latin America dash you away!
Atenas, Costa Rica may be a small town, but it has a great number of restaurants to enjoy. Whether it is because there is a good size group of international residents – about 1,500 year-round and up to 3,000 in winter months – or whether the local population (approximately 27,000) likes to eat out, you can find several dozen eateries around town and in outlying neighborhoods.
Building in Costa Rica is very different from North America and most of Europe. Located between 9 and 11 degrees latitude above the equator, Costa Rica’s tropical climate comes with its own special considerations.
