In the outlying areas, more people are mestizos, a mixture of European and Indigenous blood.

They worry about politics, Iraq, crooked politicians, and the economy. This can cause MUCH confusion to foreigners, especially North Americans who tend to be very direct.

If a Tico feels a "no" answer would in any way offend, they may well say "yes" or "maybe", or "I think so" or "that might be difficult", which is still pretty much means "no", but sounds more polite! Many visitors, especially from the US, find this a tad difficult to comprehend.

And if any of you are wondering about that lovely swimming hole.... It is located about 15km from San Jose near San Antonio de Belén and is called the Ojo de Aqua.

Something around 5,000 gallons of spring water gushes out per minute means no chlorination is needed.

In Guanacaste Province, you will find Ticos dark skinned reflecting their Nicaraguan heritage.

Ticos are extremely family oriented and love music and dance. In fact, Costa Ricans, as almost all Latinos, party loud and long and really enjoy each other's company.

There are, of course, exceptions, but on the whole, you can expect to be made welcome wherever you go. Though most of the countrys 4 million inhabitants descend from Spanish immigrants, many families originated in other parts of Europe, Asia, Africa and Central America.

A large number are fair-skinned, especially in the Central Valley.

If you plan to live here for any length of time, my suggestion would be to listen carefully, be patient, respect their culture (it's only about 1,000 years OLDER than our culture in the US), and act like you are a guest... Those who come here to live will be subject to culture shock.

If take few minutes to read our section on culture shock before arriving and you adjustment to life here will be significantly easier. Nearly every town has a Catholic church and many have a football (soccer) field in front of the church! There are many spectacular churches here in Costa Rica, some over three hundred years old like the one in this photograph to the right.

The language is Spanish, though some Ticos speak English fairly well, especially if they work in tourism.
