Costa Rica Slide Show

  1. 1. Amanda Erp Learning Costa Rica
  2. 2. Costa Rican food is created with purer and fresher ingredients than typical in the United States and other industrial countries. Even the ice cream tastes more heavenly!
  3. 3. The higher the elevation a person climbs, the faster the clouds appear to travel! Not only are they beautiful, clouds also help reflect back up some of the sun’s hot rays which in turn keeps the air around the volcano cooler for sightseers.
  4. 4. In the Museo de Arte Costarricense , there is a “Golden Room” which depicts by sculpture the entire history of Costa Rica, starting with the first settlers.
  5. 5. Traditional dance in Costa Rica involves women with flowing dresses and men who shout high pitched yells of happiness just like the more rural population in Costa Rica did. Though this dance isn’t commonly practiced now, there are still groups who keep the custom alive.
  6. 6. Costa Ricans export huge amounts of pineapple and somehow able to keep enough to eat frequently themselves. Only one pineapple can be grown on a plant per year!
  7. 7. Native Costa Ricans created many intricate gold trinkets using a sculpted clay mold and fire. When the gold was melted to the perfect form within the mold, the clay was cracked open and the process started anew. These were highly spiritual items and often given as gifts.
  8. 8. Famous for their delicious coffee, Café Britt has formed a nearly flawless routine for creating the best coffee bean. The beans are then scrutinized for color consistency, as is seen here.
