Costa Rican women are hot. That is a well known fact to guys who spend much time in Latin America, but in recent years Costa Rica has been white hot as a center of international dating, adult travel, and retirement.
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! Women from Costa Rica girls are also different from most Central American ladies. About 95% of them self-identify themselves as being of European heritage and only a small percentage are the European-Indian, Mestizo, mix that is predominate across the rest of Latin America.
The vast majority of these beautiful Latin ladies are descended from the original Spanish settlers, although there were later immigrants from other parts of Latin America and Europe, and 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. First, 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.
In Costa Rica dating often includes outdoor activities, because there are so many great things to do. 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. The Caribbean Coast has a lot of great snorkelling and good beaches too, but not the big surf found on the Pacific Coast. However, with the hot Latin girls you probably won't care.
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.
Because of the influx of Americans, English is widely spoken and Costa Rican brides 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.
Costa Rican girls are much less likely to be conservative Catholics than in most other Latin countries. 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.
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.
Here at International Love Scout we are big fans of the organized dating tours, because they do provide a real service and most guys seem to have a blast. However, Costa Rican dating is pretty straightforward.
You don't have to worry about avoiding high crime areas, or navigating official corruption, English is widely spoken, and there are lots of world class hotels, bars, and restaurants.
That all means that you don't need the support of a tour company like you would in most other centers of International dating. If you sign up with one of the agencies and travel down there you can probably find a Costa Rican girlfriend without too much trouble.
In fact, you might even want to settle down with a Costa Rican bride 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.
Really, if you've banked a million dollars or more, and lot of guys who visit this site are small businessmen and successful professionals who have that kind of money, you could pretty well retire to Costa Rica tomorrow and have a very nice standard of living. Oh, and that's not to mention the gorgeous Costa Rica girls.
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.
All of that means that Costa Rica is a great place to consider if you are seriously interested in a beautiful Latin bride.
