Costa Rica Living – Ha, (Ja in Spanish, not to be confused with Ya, which has totally different meaning) Tico Time!
Ticos (Costa Ricans) are extremely relaxed and never in a hurry, which may well have to do with the fact that they live longer than most of the world as well.
If you are a type A personality in Costa Rica, you’ll go insane. Patience is more than a virtue when it comes to tico time. It’s a requirement!
So, how does anything get done? It just get’s done more slowly and maybe sometimes it doesn’t get done. lol .
