BUT a vacation in Costa Rica is NOT the same as living in Costa Rica and there's a few things you need to consider before making such a BIG move. Consider- CULTURE SHOCK. It's real and there's a few thing you must know. Check out this video to not only have an understanding of Culture Shock but learn a thing or two about Costa Rican culture......... and maybe even a couple of things about yourself. Remember, there's a reason why some 60% of people who decide to re-locate and live in Costa Rica head back HOME in short order... and it usually has nothing to do with lush rainforests, volcanoes, Nati...

    Listen for Life ( http://www.listenforlife.org ) presents: This song blends various tales of gossip to explain the beauty and alluring effect a woman has over men, and over a local man specifically. The song cleverly masks the identities of its characters by describing them as parakeets, iguanas and deer or by their daily routine. The parakeets court and dance around the fawn and the old man tells the priest that he would sacrifice the sacred to bask in her beauty. Urbina herself becomes a character as she scoffs at the "old man carrying flowers" calls her a "hag" telling tales. She urges her companion Don Jacinto to pull as she pushes to "stir things up" because this party is more like a funeral.

  • Artisans Clay & Time - Cultural Tours in Costa Rica

    Costa Rica is a friendly and artistic country. In this short video, you'll become acquainted with Arbin, a pottery maker who lives in Tamarindo and hails from Guaitil. Guaitil is Costa Rica's most famous pottery town, so it's no surprise that Arbin learned his craft here. Set within the north-central reaches of the Nicoya Peninsula, the residents of Guaitil have a long history of producing beautiful artistic creations. The pottery that is produced here -- and which Arbin still continues to make -- is made in the pre-Columbian Chorotega style. This style relies on using organic ingredients, including clay, minerals, and other raw materials. Fine sand is mixed with dense soil and water to create the dark brown clay that is used in the pottery. The entire process is 100 percent organic. T...

http://TravelCostaRicaNOW.com It's not hard to understand why people want to uproot their life and move to Costa Rica. It's a beautiful country with a laid back attitude and affordable living. BUT a vacation in Costa Rica is NOT the same as living in Costa Rica and there's a few things you need to consider before making such a BIG move. Consider- CULTURE SHOCK. It's real and there's a few thing you must know. Check out this video to not only have an understanding of Culture Shock but learn a thing or two about Costa Rican culture......... and maybe even a couple of things about yourself. Remember, there's a reason why some 60% of people who decide to re-locate and live in Costa Rica head back HOME in short order... and it usually has nothing to do with lush rainforests, volcanoes, National Parks, beaches,pristine waterfalls, surfing, exotic wildlife and exotic adventures. Now, for the video - Hey guys, Im Michael alan for http://TravelCostaRicaNow.com first check this out. Guys, is it any wonder why people are drawn to Costa Rica?.. I mean come on Its beautiful So the next thing you know youre wanting to live here. But once you get past the romance of it all, and the beauty of it all youve got to considered one thing big time cause this isnt the states youve got to consider culture shock. Heres what our friends at Wikipedia say about culture shock: Culture shock refers to the anxiety and feelings of surprise, disorientation, uncertainty, confusion felt when people have to operate within a different and unknown culture or social environment, such as a foreign country. It grows out of the difficulties in assimilating the new culture. Causing difficulty in knowing what is appropriate and what is not. So, again, when you get pass the romance of wanting to live here youve got to considered a few more things okay were going to assume money is not a problem that you have money and thats not going to be a problem Costa Rica is pretty much like the United States was back in the 50s and 60s. Very traditional for the most part morals and values are rooted in religion, so religion plays a big part down here not saying thats good or bad Im just saying thats how it is. Ticos are very polite. Theyre non confrontational theyre pretty Bever Cleverish .. you know. Theyre all about appearances in a way they dont like to air their dirty laundry down here that type of thing. Theyre very family oriented, so thats the base of kind of the culture down here. Now as far as how they do things they are not performance driven. Like in the United States were all about work. We define ourselves through our work a lot of times here they dont do that. And they dont even really care they do not live here to work, they live here to live. Theyre all about the process of things theyre not very quick, theyre not very efficient. You have to jump through a lot of hoops down here, you have to go through a lot of red tape down here, theres a lot of paperwork down here, a lot of bureaucracy down here youre waiting and waiting for legal things to happen for your house construction to be complete. Hell, if you ask the guys Can you paint my kitchen tomorrow morning? hes say Sure. Well, hes not going to show up guys he might show up a week from now and when he comes to your door and you say Well, Im ready to leave right now. You cant do it right now hes like Im here now, whats the problem?. And youre like you were suppose to be here last week and hes like well, Im here now, whats the problem? So again, they dont care about that kind of stuff. Again, theyre about the process why would you have one person do it when you could perhaps have 10 people do it So, think of Costa Rica as one huge DMV line after line. Oh, get your insurance over there, come back tomorrow and schedule your driving test, Oh, youre in the wrong line youve got to start over, oh, you. Hahaha thats kind of how it is here if you can remember the DMV of old. For more helpful travel information on Costa Rica make sure you check out our website and our blog.

The village of Palenque Arenal says capi capi and welcomes you to an amazing experience of nature, cultural immersion, art, and adventure with new friends in a colorful indigenous private reservation. The Maleku are one of Costa Rica's seven remaining indigenous groups and have lived in the northern regions of Costa Rica for centuries. They speak Maleku, a Chibchan dialect that is distinct from the neighboring Mayan, and have managed to maintain their distinct cultural identity through waves of Western influence. But increasing development and globalization in Costa Rica have left them clinging to a rich tradition and culture that is slowly being absorbed by mainstream Tico society. There are only about 600 Maleku people left living on the northern plains communities in Costa Rica. Immerse yourself in their little-known way of life during this unique experience. You'll participate in Maleku ceremonies, learn about the medicinal uses of plants from the rainforest, create your own colorful, traditional artwork, and even pick up a few Maleku words and phrases. Your group will even have the chance to stay in a traditional Maleku house within the forest and feel the real spirit of the Maleku Tribe.

Costa Rica is a friendly and artistic country. In this short video, you'll become acquainted with Arbin, a pottery maker who lives in Tamarindo and hails from Guaitil. Guaitil is Costa Rica's most famous pottery town, so it's no surprise that Arbin learned his craft here. Set within the north-central reaches of the Nicoya Peninsula, the residents of Guaitil have a long history of producing beautiful artistic creations. The pottery that is produced here -- and which Arbin still continues to make -- is made in the pre-Columbian Chorotega style. This style relies on using organic ingredients, including clay, minerals, and other raw materials. Fine sand is mixed with dense soil and water to create the dark brown clay that is used in the pottery. The entire process is 100 percent organic. The technique that Arbin uses to craft his pieces involves using a manual hand wheel—he pushes the wheel with one hand while he shapes the pottery with the other. Once a piece is finished, it must dry for 24 hours before being polished. The more the pottery is polished, the smoother and shinier it will be after firing. Following the polishing, Arbin (and other potters who practice the Chorotega style of pottery) paints and etches. Etchings may include traditional geometric designs or animal figures. After the etching is finished, the piece is fired in a kiln and eventually completed. If you find yourself in Tamarindo or Guaitil, stop in at one of the local pottery shops—you may be able to see one of the potters at work. The mugs, masks, and figurines that potters like Arbin create are a great representation of Costa Rican culture.
