Enjoy the Casinos

Gambling is legal in Costa Rica, which is why it is home to several amazing casinos, such as the Grand Casino Escazú and Casino Club Colonial. Here, you can gather with friends and the local Costa Rican people for a night of fun, laughter, and plenty of gambling. Plus, Costa Rica’s main casinos have all the games you know and love, from blackjack to poker, so you’ll never be bored.

If you’ve not gambled for a while, it’s a good idea to practice your gambling skills before arriving in Costa Rica.

JackpotCity Casino has an app so you can play on either your PC, tablet, or smartphone. Sites like this have great security and follow safe betting practices so you can focus on having fun. Remember that you will need to take care of your own safety when gambling in a land-based casino.

Visit National Parks

Providing you don’t have a fear of volcanos or lava, going on a fun lava trek will be right up your street. Some lava treks in Costa Rica even offer camping opportunities, which is also something to think about doing if you’re an outdoorsy person.

Head to San José

Finally, don’t forget to visit San José, which is the capital city of Costa Rica. Here, you can check out countless tourist attractions (such as the Winchester Mystery House), eat some amazing food, and get a genuine feel for what it’s like to be in the ‘heart’ of Costa Rica.

Carter is self-described as thirty-three-and-a-half years old and his thirty-three-and-a-half years birthday is always on March 3. Carter characteristically avoids pronouns, referring to himself in the third person (e.g. "Carter has a question" rather than, "I have a question"). One day [in 1984], Carter, raised himself up and from that day forward we could all read what Carter writes.
