    My son and I traveled to Costa Rica recently and it was quite nice. We basically road tripped and passed through many small communities. Overall, we’d say that we felt welcome and safe in all of these communities. We didn’t feel uneasy at any point and most people were very kind. One of the only downfalls is that we ran into very, very few black people and we have to brush up on our Spanish bigtime because most of the communities that we stopped in had zero English speakers. SanJos has awful traffic, so be prepared for that. We rented and vehicle with ease and it was quite affordable because it is non peak season. It takes a long time to get around most places because of the winding roads across the countryside. Lots of mountains and volcanoes. Airbnbs were also beautiful and affordable. Food, not so much. Whether you prepare your own food or eat out, it’ll be pricey. Food wasn’t that great, but that’s subjective, of course. I have to say that Costa Rica is one of the most gorgeous countries I’ve ever visited. Definitely worth a visit beyond the resorts.
