Costa Rica Costa Of Living Update: Cover charge for 4th of July party at The Mar Vista Beach Club which also included dinner and access to pool—$12/person

I don’t often write about the nightlife in Costa Rica, but July 4th was a doozy. We went to Mar Vista Beach Club and watched a live band before heading out to Flamingo for fireworks. Americans and Costa Ricans celebrated side by side under the night sky. And this just proves if there is a party, everyone will want to grill some hot dogs, enjoy each other’s company,  and watch the sky come alive with pyrotechnics.

September 15th will be Costa Rica’s Independence Day. No doubt I’ll be rubbing elbows with Gringos and Ticos alike, eating fried plantains, and watching fireworks conscious of the freedoms that Costa Ricans and Americans share. Coincidentally, both country’s flags are red, white, and blue.

    Just watched your Ex-Pats episode! We have a rental house lined up in Puriscal, and will be there soon! We’re renting from a long-time expat couple who are excited to help us get started. Woohoo! Hope we run into you guys some day!

      Thanks a lot Bryan. Love Puriscal. The Ex-Pat show was so much fun to do and I think it really showed how happy we are living here.

    That looked like so much fun! The monkeys and coatis probably disagree but they can sleep in! Will miss their Independence Day by one day, what was I thinking? Hopefully festivities go on throughout the week. I remember Mother’s Day was a week long celebration in August.

    Definitely will have to visit Mar Vista. You guys make it look like such a fun place. You need to get a kick back for free advertising!

      It was great Deborah. It’s amazing how much things are the same here as in the states. Never a dull moment!
