  1. I am a horticulturist, interested in tropical plants, flowers, palm trees, rain forests, jungle hikes, etc. I would think Costa Rica would be an ideal place for that but I don’t see much on any of your pages. Does DIY CR have any project devoted to this subject?

  2. Ok.. you guys have done us a great service with this blog and your other services. Thanks ahead of time.. Here’s my question… Want to get married at la fortuna waterfall – just the two of us. Best way to go about that? wedding planner seems a bit silly; as just us and a commitment ceremony – not even interested in “legal marriage” there, just an exchange of vows, rings, and photos. What do you suggest?

    Thanks so much !!

  3. I am thinking of vacationing in Costa Rica for a couple of weeks in 2017.However, I am very afraid of heights so I have some concerns that the landscape might not be suitable for me. I would be frightened of windy, high roads even roads that are not exceptionally high but do not have guard rails and are bumpy. I love wildlife, birding, and nature. Are there particular areas of Costa Rico accessible from either of the two main airports in which driving would not be a problem and in which I would be able to go to nature reserves etc.? I would primarily be residing in one location or two but then driving to sightsee other areas. Thank you so much for any help you may provide.

  4. Hi, what is the best way to combine Arenal, Quepos/Manuel Antonio and the Pacuare river (one day on river)?
