We are fairly new to this but we love it! it has been such an awesome experience to learn about other cultures and meet people from all over the world. We have hosted for several people already from United Kingdom, Denmark, Canada, USA, Spain, Germany, Austria, etc :-) We are very easy going and open minded people, we have lived for more than 10 years outside Costa Rica, in U.S.A. and have traveled to China, France, Hong Kong, Netherlands, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Belgium, USA, Colombia, Panama and hope to keep traveling :-)
Our little project consists in provide local children with amazing multi-cultural experiences by bringing people from all over the world to their education area, our classes are totally in English though the rest of the day we speak Spanish but constantly implement English, sign language and other languages into their activities and help our regulars teaches with their daily routines~

Around the city you can see the location of his home, although now there is just a small palque and garden as the house in long gone.
