Pool at Hotel Bambito Costa Rica / Volcán

Second Visa Run and Corrupt Policemen Costa Rica / Panama

This past week we made our second visa run since moving to Costa Rica.

We’re Moving to Costa Rica Costa Rica

Wait! Moving?! As in “one-way ticket”? As in, “you’re not coming back?” Yep. That’s right. Are we crazy? Probably. You’re kidding, right? But… WHY?!!
