If identical text or photos appear elsewhere online, the material has been stolen from us. As our reputation as a valuable Costa Rica resource grows, unfortunately so does plagiarism. While it is flattering, it is also illegal. We never copy and paste information from other sources and we hope to receive the same respect from other writers.
