Costa Rica

In the planning stages of doing some long distance cruising which may involve stopping in Costa Rica for up to a year. Does anyone have information about where the best place would be to keep a boat in Costa Rica (Atlantic vs. Pacific, etc.) and what area would be a nice place to settle down for awhile. We have twin 6 yo boy's and would like them to attend school while we are there.
Thanks,
Kim

Costa Rica

The Atlantic side has little safety for a boat or personnell. The Pacific side has several. In general the lower budget places to keep a boat are towards Panama. You don't want to miss any of it, though, and there should be plenty of time to explore the various areas and return to the one which satisfies your needs most.

Do you still need information ?

Hi, if you still need information I can help you because I live in Costa Rica and have my boat in Puntarenas - Central Pacific coast, at 45 miles fron San Jose.
You can see some places in my site:
