We just completed the Camino and returned home to Costa Rica and would like to organize a lunch or dinner with other pilgrims from or living in Costa Rica and anyone planning to do the Camino.
It will be fun to meet and share experiences.
If interested please contact Mike at me_ n_cr@yahoo.com and let's arrange something.

I lived and taught in Costa Rica from 1993 to 1996: Heredia first and then down to Corcovado and Drake Bay. Paradise... Not a road or a car in sight: just me and my horse, endless jungle and wonderful turtle-clad beaches. I would just like to say Pura Vida to all of you. What a wonderful country. I have great memories! Have a "Cacique" on me! (Whoo...!)

Of course Costa Rica has changed a lot since your last stay here. As much as the Camino de Santiago (Francés) has changed over the past years.
Publicity of a "best kept secret", through books, blogs, videos, films, etc. inevitably attracts more visitors and "adventure" seekers, possibly without sacrificing too many comforts.
The Camino de Santiago infrastructures still allow for experiencing the spirit of pilgrims walking towards the tomb of St. James.
Costa Rica still has beautiful remote areas for nature lovers.

As you may check at the Camino Calendar, we hope to arrive in Jaca on 17th September to start our pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela the next day. :D

Anybody interested in organizing a Central America meeting sometime this summer?
I will start doing the Camino Frances next week and will travel back from Europe mid June.
Anytime after that I would be in for a meet-up on a weekend :D

All the best wishes from Managua/Nicaragua

Hello Claudia. We live in Costa Rica, near Heredia. There are several Pilgrims from Costa Rica - usually on the average 30/36 per year.
When you return from your Pilgrimage, do get in touch! My husband Adraan (fraluchi on the Forum) will be leaving on11th May and will be accompanying a group of disabled Pilgrims on a very slow walk from Sarria to Santiago, but he should already be back in C..R. By 1st June. Who knows, you might just see the group. Anne

Mea maxima culpa!:oops: I made real booboo on the date: it's tonight, Thursday 5th September 2013 that we're meeting. Will report on who turned up. Various past and future "caminantes" confirmed their presence. :)

We were 14 past and future Caminantes, enjoying a delicious dinner with the following menu:
Pulpo a la gallega, chistorras con huevitos de codorniz, salpicón de mariscos y papas bravas; paella de carnes o una mariscada; crema catalana o peras al vino - con un orujo de hierbas; vino y sangría.
We ended the "fiesta" with cremat catalá and a QUEIMADA gallega.
All in style.
Next meeting, Thursday 31st October 2013. Same place, same time.
Welcome to new members!

As you can all see, we had a great meal with great company. One couple had done the Camino with their 18 yr old son, who was also present last night! Anne

Hi krazeekuban. We're having nicer weather here than the cold we suffered during our last days in Santiago. Probably better than Phoenix too ?! We guessed that you enjoyed the pleasures of Santiago, apart from the Amigo efforts. That certainly was a positive experience.

I realize this is an old thread, but I will give it a try...
I live in Costa Rica and would enjoy meeting with fellow pilgrims.
Do you still get together?

[...]Do you still get together?
Yes we do occasionally. Mostly at the "La Lluna de Valencia" whose owner Vicente is a real Camino fan. This coming autumn will see one pilgrim starting from Lourdes, and Annakappa will probably walk the invierno with me early October. We live in Santo Domingo de Heredia.:)
