    This is the living area of our humble casa for a week in Costa Rica.

    Yes, it was a good week. The casa is very remote and off the grid but has solar/battery electric. It provided enough power for lights in the evening, hot water, and recharging camera batteries :thumbup:.

    No TV (didn't miss it a bit) but we did have wifi. The Costa Ricans do a great job of "relaying" signals into remote areas.

    Nice! Do you mind me asking where it is? It looks a lot like a place we rented in Punto Banco once.

    This is located at the edge of the Chirripo National Park. The closest town is San Gerardo, population < 400. (see map) Closest town of any size is San Isidro. The casa is located at the end of the dirt and rock road as you head toward Mt Chirripo. This is where we plan to retire in 3 years. :thumbup:
