Enjoyed the article on Costa Rica ...I visited there over twenty years ago. Sorry to hear about some of the less than positive changes that have taken place since but, I don't think there is a place in the world that doesn't undergo change in that amount of time good, bad, or indifferent.
I was saddened by your article. My brother did a semester in Costa Rico and throughly enjoyed it. Of course, that was over 20 years ago and much has changed. A little understood fact of economics is that tourism does not really build a truly stable economy. It furnishes lots of new jobs, perhaps, but they are all minimum wage, not family- supporting incomes. Updated: 2003-06-11 02:04:04
