    It is ideal to stroll along its paths and gardens on Sunday. You can enjoy nature, their different ecological niches; You can relax under the shade of large trees and run or walk among the different buildings. For those who like to watch birds also can find an appropriate site.

    Being the richest country in the Caribbean has a price, you have to devote to research. However still a little travel has to reach Puerto Rico or Cuba, which are at the forefront in certain fields. Costa Rica strives a lot, for example, in the specialty that deals, there is already a team dedicated to the biological quality of water that as little, it deserves a place among the greats. At the State level, it is another issue, I get the impression they are neglecting a bit regarding urban discharges. Ojito, can pass bill to tourism, the most important commitment of the country.

    I traveled to Costa Rica this summer to study abroad and improve my Spanish. During my two month stay, I studied Spanish at the Universidad de Costa Rica. I cannot express enough how much this place has changed my life forever. I will, for the rest of my life, live with a 'pura vida' mentality. All the amazing women at this school were some of the most influential people I have ever met and I am forever changed because of them.

    The best uni in CR but with very small and hot classrooms. The food from the cafeteria in Generales, Derecho, Comedor Estudiantil, Letras sucks because of it's low quality although it's cheap.
