San Joaquín de Flores is the quintessential quaint Costa Rican village, centralized around La Plaza where children, teens and families gather for recreational bike riding, soccer scrimmages and conversation.  Of course no typical Costa Rican plaza is without the public primary school and Catholic Church; fun fact: did you know almost all the Catholic Church doors in Costa Rica face west? A helpful tip when trying to find your way around, as Costa Ricans use cardinal directions and points of reference as addresses.  As you look around the plazas don’t be surprised if you see a very small corner bar where the older gentlemen pull up a stool for a leisurely ‘cerveza’ and low key chat with friends.  Another important feature to any typical town – a fried chicken establishment – San Joaquin de Flores offers three for your choosing.  Fried chicken is likened to the hamburger of the north, a very popular fast food option served with pickled plantains and a side of fries.  Should you prefer other local fare, in San Joaquin you have a solid variety of restaurants from which to choose: seafood, to Chinese, to ‘tipico’.

Tours are the perfect complement to studying Spanish as they incorporate not only adventure – imagine white water rafting, canopy ziplines, & river cannyoning; learning about another culture - envision a traditional sugarcane & cacao or coffee tours, pre-Columbian pottery & gold pieces at the National Museum, and typical dances; but also ecology and biodiversity- picture seeing first hand monkeys (3 kinds!), scarlet macaws, crocodiles or sloths (2 or 3 toed) all in their natural habitat whether that be a tropical dry, rain or cloud forest.   Costa Rica offers all the aforementioned and more in the landmass the size of West Virginia.
