The Area Of San Vito In The Southern Zone Of Costa Rica
San Vito is an unusual place in an extraordinary country. It is quite civilized with five supermarkets, banking choices, post office, good coffee shops, several highly recommended restaurants, an Italian Cultural Center, social medicine hospital, airstrip, and well-maintained roads. Every Saturday local growers offer fresh produce, food items, plants, and sometimes dance performances downtown.
The climate is governed by the 4,000' altitude creating lovely, warm days in the '80s and cooler evenings in the 60s. No AC required!
Local attractions include the internationally-recognized Wilson Botanical Garden at the Organization for Tropical Studies Las Cruces Biological Station. Another destination for nature-lovers is Finca Cantaros, a park-like biological reserve. Additionally, San Vito has an active bird club, the San Vito Bird Club offering free, bi-monthly Bird Walks and volunteer opportunities.
San Vito was settled by Italian immigrants looking for a better life after World War !!; they came to grow coffee and maintain a presence on the southern border. Descendants of the original 60 families are still here and you can savor some of this rich cultural history at Restaurante Pizzeria Lilliana. And talking of Italian restaurants, a somewhat newcomer to the region but quickly becoming a favorite is La Casa Italiana Ristorante
If you have friends coming to visit, you can set them up with amazing adventures through Desafios Tours, an adventure and nature-oriented tour company showcasing coffee processing, cave explorations, and mountain terrain.
Further south, sport fishing excursions can be arranged in the port town of Golfito and the unspoiled beaches of Playa Zancudo and Pavones (famous for surfing) are within a 2-3 hours drive, offering restaurants and accommodations. Other beautiful beach areas reachable in 2 hours are Ojochal, Uvita, and Dominical (15 min further).
Moving to Costa Rica is the perfect choice for pretty much anyone. Enthusiasts of Latin American culture will find themselves right at home in one of Central America’s most peaceful countries. Under the hot sun and between the golden coastlines, you’ll find a warm people with a cheap cost of living!
Costa Rica is a country that can be proud of both its history and its geography. A country underwritten by the philosophy of peace, Costa Rica abolished its standing army in 1949. Furthermore, while most of its neighbors were subject to civil war, dictatorships, and political corruption, Costa Rica has more than sixty-year history of democracy.
And yet, perhaps even more peaceful than the political system is the country’s beautiful landscape. Encompassed by beautiful coastlines to the east and west, Costa Rica is a mountainous and volcanic country, rich in forests. Amazingly, while Costa Rica only accounts for about 0.03% of the world’s landmass, its rich ecosystems are home to almost 6% of the planet’s biodiversity. Nestled among creatures big, small and fantastic is a relatively happy group of expats. InterNations’ Expat Insider 2019 survey found that over a third of respondents living there were retirees, with an average age of 52. Maybe it’s the sandy beaches or the volcanically enriched coffee, but whatever the case, expats living in Costa Rica have fallen in love with the country. In the survey, just under half of the respondents living there said they were considering staying in Costa Rica forever.
