Our neighbors were thoughtful and welcoming and took the time to get to know us.
People you met in town and at stores were generally polite.
Carson, Savannah, and Tucker were each invited to participate and help out at church.
We really enjoyed meeting and talking with other families from the US that we met at church and on tours. It was always interesting to here their backgrounds and learn about what brought them to Costa Rica.
In general, the areas we were in felt safer and friendlier than when we were in Washington, DC.
