After reading From Gingo to Tico, I understand now how to navigate my way.  From maps and directions, to stores and restaurants, to important legal information - all valuable to anyone who is thinking of living or traveling in Costa Rica - this is one-stop shopping.

Add this to your collection of must-have guides to this beautiful country."

Rhonda and Rita, the authors of From Gringo to Tico

Rhonda James (pictured left), an expat from California, kept detailed notebooks on the practical aspects of living in Costa Rica.  The notebooks proved so useful to others that she was urged to publish them. 
Rhonda is the founder of Caring Hearts, an organization in Costa Rica that teaches orphan girls job and life skills. 
She has lived in Costa Rica with her husband, Brian since 2006.  They have five children and four grandchildren living in the US.

Rita Lucas (pictured right) is a Canadian that has lived in Costa Rica at her B&B in the south Pacific area since 2006 and has been coming to Costa Rica for many years prior to her move. She fell in love with this beautiful country on her first visit.
Rita is a published author, the founder of Two Wise Chicks Publishing and a Belief Re-Patterning™ Practitioner . She coaches clients from all walks of life on personal and business related matters; as well as helping people self publish their writings.

“So much more than just another travel
guide, it’s a real life guide to Costa Rica.”
