Costa Rica News – Costa Rica, or the land of “Pura Vida,” is known for it’s peaceful people and tranquil way of life. When I tell my friends back home about the people I meet here they are shocked at the stories of how kind Costa Ricans are.
They are typically a selfless people who genuinely care about each other and visitors to their beautiful country. It’s just a guess, but I’d think that waking up to a view of magnificent mountains or sparkling oceans adds to the sense of serenity that Costa Ricans tend to share.
If you are coming to Costa Rica after hearing such things about the people you may be interested to know more about the women here and how you can approach, befriend, or romance them. This is a very common question among foreigners.
If you are coming for a short visit it might be helpful to try and find a local to travel with. Having someone by your side who understands the culture and language is a helpful start. This will help you experience the country in a different way and it will help you meet people.
Costa Ricans don’t all fit stereotypes, of course, but many share some general qualities. For one thing, they tend to be beautiful! There’s a great genetic mix in this country and Ticas are born with the best features of a mixture of races. They are accustomed to receiving compliments and may be offended if you fail to tell them how gorgeous they look.
Another generalization is that they like to dance, even with foreigners who don’t know how. The Tica girls are patient with this as well as with the language barrier. They are well educated and are not usually shy about trying to speak English.
Things to avoid when meeting and dealing with Costa Rican women include being loud, drunk, and showy with your money. Basically any behavior that screams “look at me” will be a turn off. That is, unless you are trying to attract someone from a low class.
Higher class girls prefer that you ask questions about the country and about them instead of acting ignorant.
Tips for Dating Costa Rican Women
Personality wise, they are the opposite of North American girls. They don’t go to bars alone, they don’t wear revealing clothing. They are not shy or annoyingly outspoken. They are well rounded, independent, and intelligent. Who wouldn’t want to date a girl with stunning looks and a perfect personality? Here are some tips to keep in mind to get you started on that venture.
Her family is important to her. Respect them and never make fun of them. Support them all, somehow, even if they are in a fight! She will probably still live with her parents until she is married, so they are not going anywhere. If you are invited to a holiday festivity always say yes. It’s an honor.
Her cooking is important to her. Whether she cooks good or not, a lot of love goes into every meal and her self esteem is attached. Chances are she is a good cook because her family recipes have been perfected and handed down. It’s best not to make any comment about the food she or her family cooks other than that it is perfect.
Her education is important to her. Even if she plans to stay at home watching the kids in the future, she probably has at least a bachelor’s degree. For a time she may have held an important position or internship. She may look weak but actually own a business! Don’t underestimate a Tica woman!
Her religion is important to her. It is actually a part of who she is. If you are invited to a religious ceremony with her, go wearing something fancy. It will probably be followed by a family celebration with lots of great food.
