The Ultimate Costa Rica Cookbook: Healthy, Quick, & Easy Meals
Delicious exotic foods
We set out to learn how to cook in Costa Rica. Since our goal was to get healthier while living in Costa Rica, we worked with the locals and even the doctors to learn how to cook healthy.
What we learned through this process was life-changing!
Not only did we find ways to save money, but we also found that changing the way we were eating, and cooking had tremendous effects on our physical lives as well.
Investing in yourself is important, especially when it comes to health.
You've probably imagined what would happen if you truly felt your best. Whenever things are out of balance our performance drops.
Imbalance causes unhappiness and decreased our satisfaction in life. Making changes in your common habits can make you feel like a whole new person.
228 Days Trapped in Paradise: The Diary of an Expat Chica in Costa Rica
#1 International Bestseller
This travel author will never look at international travel the same after experiencing, “228 Days Trapped in Paradise.”
One thing is for sure, I stepped way out of my comfort zone when I unlocked this one. What does a writer do as her world spins out of control? I can’t speak for others, but for this chica, she writes, and she writes some more.
It only took a minute as Costa Rica closed its land, sea, and air borders. 24 days that was all it was going to be! The writings were pounded out on the keyboard after meetings, hard days, or just a good Pura Vida day. Aware that lockdown in Costa Rica was way different than what my friends and family had experienced. This had even become more apparent after my return to the U.S.
With the pandemic and travel being hot topics, a side of government control, and social media censorship these words were never meant to see the light of day. But what can I say, the world has changed.
Best "how to" guide yet!!!!!
November 14, 2017
The Pages have put together a great up to date experiential guide to relocating to Costa Rica. I have lived here for over 23 years and this book has all the information that I would love to share with newcomers. It's well informed and comprehensive as well as a fun read. They cover all the major aspects of daily life whether you are planning on being here for just a month to a lifetime. I am so glad they took the time to compile and share this great local info. It will help anyone who is considering the move and will definitely ease the challenges of transition. I loved reading their book and will share it with friends as well as use it as a resource for myself. This is a must buy.
This book is awesome! If you're moving to CRThis book is awesome! If you're moving to CR, especially anywhere in the Guanacaste region, this is the perfect book. It's an easy read, has tons of super useful information, but isn't so long that you'll never finish it. Trying to navigate the banking system? Thinking of renting or buying? Wondering if you need to be fluent in Spanish? Do you need insurance? Want to know about residency, how to do proper "border runs", which is the best local school for your child..... all mixed in with great anecdotes? Cut the Crap makes an excellent read on the airplane and is the perfect book or gift for anyone who's ever considered moving to Costa Rica. Two thumbs up - don't miss this book!
I Loved the intro and first part of the book!
Very informative! Everything you need to know and more! I Loved the intro and first part of the book. A wonderful way to save a marriage and such a brave family! A must-read for anyone considering moving.
Great book and very informative!
I bought this book before taking a trip down to Costa Rica because if I move or don't move there is a lot of very helpful information on how the country works and local options. We tried out the food suggestion and got pineapple pie at Nogui's and that was simply amazing. Also as a side note I am actually writing this review from Tamarindo, Costa Rica. My favorite part of the book is when they are trying to out run a forest fire while leaking gasoline out of their vehicle.
Definitely recommended for anyone who is considering the move themselves
A very detailed and honest explanation of moving to Costa Rica! Definitely recommended for anyone who is considering the move themselves. It was even fun (and informative) for someone who has lived in CR for 8+ years to read.
