Exploring new grounds: Costa Rica (I)

Digital nomading in Costa Rica

I landed in Costa Rica a few days ago, where I’ll be servicing my clients and creating new ways to make online income, as well as travel, see the country and get to know its people.

Digital nomading has been my lifestyle for the past couple of years already, but this is the first time I’m going all by myself.

I have wanted to travel alone since I was in high school. Today, I’m thirty five years old and finally doing it. It feels big and completely natural at the same time.

Why Costa Rica

The wonderful journey to Portugal (see all Summer in a VW Camper van posts) only a month or two ago, made me realize how happy and healthy I am when living close to nature. Costa Ricans (who like to call themselves ‘Ticos’) are supposedly masters of this lifestyle.

La Pura Vida

Their country is teaming with life, harbouring over 80% of all the world’s species of flora and fauna on its tiny surface.

The people are among the happiest in the world and the country is one of the global ‘hotspots’ for longevity. That means there are a lot of men and women over a hundred years old here.

How do they do that..? The answer lies in the country’s motto: La Pura Vida, the pure life. Keep things simple, keep moving, eat healthy foods, connect with others. Here, on the streets, it’s a way to say hi and bye: ‘pura vida!’.

Are you sure..?

Since I came here, I have also spoken to people who have a whole different experience with Costa Rica and some of its people.

I’m about to find out for myself and will of course blog about my experiences.
