Off on a Home Exchange to San Jose Costa Rica

Jump to last reply

I'll be off on a home exchange (house is east of downtown San Jose) in a week. It will be my first time to Central America and I am so excited. Gonna be in the sun for Thanksgiving.

Costa Rica is will be my 55th home exchange since 1990 (over 20 have been in Europe, 7 in Australia, 2 in New Zealand and the rest in the US & Canada). I will be blogging the trip here:

I haven't done a lot of research on this trip and am just winging it. I know I am going to do a float/whitewater day trip (depending on back), walk through the jungle to see the monkeys and birds and go to the beach. I am open to suggestions if anyone has a list. I will have a car and will spend an occasional night out to tour but mostly will be based in the house to save money.

I hope to be able to help others once I return.
