A glimpse at Costa Rican wildlife from sloaths, iguanas, monkeys, birds, caymans, and many more.
These exotic animals can be seen through out Costa Rica, as the country reserves most of it's land as National Parks. Many unhibited places has some of the most beautiful animals, critters, insects and birds.
Some animals like iguanas, monkeys and birds have adapted living close to development from humans.
When you come to Costa Rica, make sure to bring your hiking shoes, bug repellent, and good binoclulars! You don't want to miss a thing when immersed in nature.

The Pejibaye fruit has been adapted to Costa Rican culture for many years. The fruits grow in the wild, and when picked, sold, it's then fermented to be eaten. Some have made soup out of the fruits. You can find street vendors or outdoor farm markets selling them.
When you come to Costa Rica, make sure to give them a try.
This has been another Gallo Pinto Talks experience! I'm your guide, Massi Devoto.

Patacones which consist of fried green plantains, is very popular in the Latin cutures. Many countries might have their own specific name to it, but in the end it's just simply, fried plantain.
You need [to]:
- Peel the green plantains
-Cut the plantains in small circle pieces possibly about 4-6 pieces
- Flatten them up with wood mortar
- Fry them into the pre-heated oil and remove when brown in color.
This a very popular appetizer in Costa Rica.

Costa Rica is a playground for all things nature. There are so many things to see and do in the country. One of the many experiences travelers can try is horseback riding.
There are plenty of places that offer these tours, especially, in the beach. If you come across ridding in less populated beaches, the experience is twice as exciting!
We took a tour from a local guide just an hour South from Dominical Beach. What we experience was breathetaking! The private beach during the sunset was one of those rare experiences. It fells like you discovered a whole new country, literally.
