This city is art, food, madness, history, football, markets, small hidden squares, friends meeting for a "caña" and long nights. Madrid is ...Read more >

Costa Rica's caribbean holiday

It is not a coincidence that Costa Rica has been recognized many times as the happiest country in the world. What is the secret formula that makes this little Central American country an oasis of peace & happiness? Is it simply because of its natural beauty and the fact it has no army since 1948? Maybe having access to the Pacific and the Atlantic oceans + enviable weather conditions may also have something to do with that? It might even be because they have the freshest/tastiest fruit and some of the best coffee in the world!
