Costa Rican Brides
Costa Rica Girls – Find Love in a Tropical Paradise
Costa Rican mail order brides are hot. That is a well-known fact to guys who spend much time in Latin America and in recent years Costa Rica has been white hot as a center of international dating, adult travel, and retirement.
It is an amazing country!
In fact, more than a few successful guys have simply dropped out of the rat race in mid-career after experiencing Costa Rica, because the lifestyle is great and financially it makes sense to relocate down there.
Oh, and Costa Rica girls are hot-hot-hot! Some guys say they are the hottest Latina’s, but that is hard to say. Most Latinas are short, curvaceous, Mestizo babes. You can see the traces of Aztec, Inca, and other pre-Colombian native tribes in Latinas’ high cheek bones and dark eyes.
Hot Latinas are very hot, but women from Costa Rica are different from most ladies from Central and South American.
About 95% of them self-identify themselves as being of European heritage and only a small percentage are the European-Indian, Mestizo. This is the reverse of most Latin countries.
The vast majority of Costa Rican women are descended from the original Spanish settlers, but that strain was reinforced in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries by additional waves of German, Italian, and American immigrants.
When you sort it all out Costa Rica brides are more or less beautiful Spanish girls living in a tropical paradise.
Costa Rica is known as the Switzerland of Central America and there is a real argument that it is the very best place to go to meet hot Latin women.
It is one of the greenest places on the planet. It still has much of its old growth forest and they have even voted not to explore for oil in several promising areas.
The history of this little country is unique – at least in Latin America. It has not suffered the civil wars, revolutions, rebellions, or natural disasters so common across the region. That gives Costa Ricans a little more swagger and makes them slightly more cosmopolitan than most Latinas.
Dating In Costa Rica
Dating in Costa Rica is usually active dating, because there are so many amazing outdoor activities available. The country’s Pacific Coast has some of the best surfing in the world and lots of beautiful Costa Rican girls in bikinis.
Though it has gotten more crowded, there are still miles of undeveloped beaches, and in Costa Rica women are much more likely to participate in surfing and other adventure sports than is common in other Central American countries.
Second, all of your really cool friends already live there, because they know about the hot Costa Rican women. Perhaps as many as 200,000 foreigners, mostly American already live there attracted by the beautiful scenery, low cost of living, and hot Latin women.
The central part of the country is dominated by a series of mountains, the tallest of which, Cerro Chirripo, rises to over 12,000 feet. That allows for a lot of hiking and camping possibilities.
And if that is not exciting enough for you there are also lots of very long very fast zip lines where you can get your girl to scream or maybe scream like a girl yourself. USA Today recently awarded Costa Rica as the country with the best zip lines in the world.
This is a pretty good video about Costa Rica if you fast forward past the guy talking and instead focus on the pretty girl and the gorgeous scenery.
One of the great thing about all of the beaches is that all of them have a very high level of service. So, it is not hard to find a nice cabana with good drink service and simply relax with your beautiful Costa Rican girlfriend.
Yep, it is a great concept.
Still, sometimes a guy just wants to go fishing, and besides the great salt water fishing, in recent years Costa Rica has become something of a bass fishing Mecca. Now, that is definitely an attraction for some guys: Great bass fishing and hot Latin ladies. My goodness!
The place would be overrun with guys from Arkansas, Mississippi, and Alabama if they just knew what they are missing, so let’s just make this our little secret.
Costa Rica Brides – Not Your Average Latinas
Because of the influx of Americans, English is widely spoken and Costa Rican women are among the most educated and sophisticated of all Latin girls. In Costa Rica women generally have twelve years of primary education and it has an excellent university system.
In Costa Rica girls tend to be much more in tune with European culture, particularly Spanish, than other Central American women, so sometimes they can come across as more sophisticated or cosmopolitan than you might expect.
They have the relaxed modern air of Spanish or French girls. Costa Rican girls are much less likely to be conservative Catholics than in most other Latin countries. They are cool and savvy about the modern world.
Now, that does mean that you cannot simply come across as a player. These women have grown up on sad stories of beautiful Costa Rican brides who got played by unscrupulous gringos. So, don’t be that guy.
Show some confidence, but don’t be arrogant. These girls can find an overbearing man if that is what they want. Be cool, smart, and relaxed and you will have women coming out of the woodwork for you.
These women understand the give and take of international dating. That means there is not as much resistance to marrying outside of the Catholic Church or arguing about whether any children you might have must be christened. But unless this is going to make your head explode you should probably avoid this fight.
Also, in most of the tourist areas, particularly San Jose and on the Pacific Coast, the night-life is great and affordable. In fact, of everywhere in Central America Costa Rica is probably the easiest trip for an American or Canadian guy who wants to simply take a shot at do-it-yourself International dating.

Visiting Costa Rica
For the most part the best time to visit is probably from about December to March, but the country has some of the best weather in the world. The main issue you should consider is avoiding the rainy season which runs from May to October.
But in Costa Rica you can control the weather. No, joke. All you have to do is drive into the mountains or out to one of the thousands of miles of beaches.
On the Pacific Coast there is almost always a breeze, because of the constant trade winds. The Atlantic Coast is often warmer and usually not as breezy, but the local breezes are still refreshing.
But the way you control the weather is by heading up into the mountains if you want it cooler or down to lower elevations if you need to raise the temperature. The equation is that for every thousand feet rise in elevation at the equator you drop three degrees Fahrenheit.
Costa Rica is fairly close to the equator and has large regions about 5000 feet, so that would bring the ninety-degree temperatures in the lowlands near the cost down to a comfortable seventy five with just a shot drive.
From Dallas, Texas a flight to San Jose, the capital of Costa Rica is about four hours and forty minutes. To see check flights from your city take a look at the trip on Google Flights. The prices for June 2018 look like they are from about $550 to $800 for a round trip economy fare from Dallas.
It is a little trickier if you are flying from Europe or even Canada, but I found flights for as low about $900 from London to San Jose on CheapFlights.com. That is not bad and the flight is only about fifteen hours. That is a long flight, but it is about the same length as a flight from London to Bangkok.
Best Hotels In Costa Rica
The best hotels in Costa Rica are not hotels. This is the modern travel industry and Airbnb owns the market. So, that is the place to start your search.
Accommodations in Costa Rica are absolutely world class and far cheaper than in the United States or Western Europe. Of course, there are a lot of hotels in Costa Rica, particularly in San Joes, and along the beaches, but this country might just be the epicenter of the Airbnb.

Imagine have a glass of wine with a beautiful Costa Rican girl as you watched the sunset. Yes, it is romantic.
There are literally thousands of part-time rentals across the country. Many are the vacation homes of Americans or Europeans who might not live there more than a couple of weeks a year.
Often they are expensively built with the best materials and furnished like it is Malibu or Manhattan and they are often in just gorgeous spots where even the hardest hearted old guy is going to get romantic. Well,
That means the competition tends to be brutal, so don’t hesitate to ask for discounts because even during the high season you have an excellent chance of negotiating a great deal, particularly if you plan on staying for at least a week in a location.

In fact, you might even want to settle down with a Costa Rican wife and live in the county, because it is generally considered the best place to live in Central America.
It is a very stable country with a strong government and a tradition of respect for the law.
Since the late 19th century there have only been two brief periods of political violence, none in the last fifty years.

Further, you don’t have to just lay on the beach all day. Costa Rica has one of the highest levels of foreign direct investment per capita in Latin America, and because of the booming tourist trade there are lots of business and employment opportunities for Westerners.
A lot of successful guys end up marrying a Costa Rican mail order bride, moving to Costa Rica, and going into business down there.
Of course, the internet makes it easy to do business from almost anywhere, but Costa Rica also has the advantage of having a very stable government and an excellent judicial system, so you are much less likely to get extorted by local cops, businessmen, or politicians the way you can in many Latin American countries, or somewhere like the Philippines.
The business climate is great and Costa Rican women are stunning. You can’t really ask for more than that, but Costa Rica dating delivers all of that and more, because it is also a world class tourist destination.
