SENSORIA COSTA RICA–THE FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH

Tales of the Fountain of Youth have been recounted across the world for thousands of years. It first appeared in writings by Herodotus in the 5th century BC; then again in the 3rd century AD in the Alexander Romance, an account of Alexander the Great. It can be found in the Prester John stories of the early Crusades of the 11th and 12th centuries AD; and was very prominent among the indigenous people of the Caribbean during the early 16th century, who spoke of the magical powers of the water in the mythical land of Bimini. The famous Ponce de Leon, the first Governor of Puerto Rico, traveled to Florida in 1513 specifically to locate and claim it, as legend says it could restore youth to anyone. Unfortunately, he was mortally wounded by an Indian arrow before any discovery could be made, and the mystical baths were never located or revealed. So, you just knew, that on my birthday, as Father Time continues to chase me, I would be the one who finds it, beating hundreds of Explorers to the prize.

What is the Costa Rica dress code?

Hello!

What is the name of this website?

TANK TOPS FLIP FLOPS

Exactly.

That is our dress code.

Costa Rica dress code is tank tops and flip flops

Literally, you can go anywhere in this town, in shorts and T shirts. I work every day, in a pair of Tommy Bahama shorts and Polo Shirt, with a pair of Flip Flops. I could go to a wedding or a funeral dressed like that, and no one would be offended. As a matter of fact, they would probably be dressed the same way.

But the nice thing is, you can also get dressed up, and you would still fit right in. Whatever floats your boat, as they say. That’s the Costa Rica dress code.

The only exception to this, is if you visit one of the resorts and eat in their fine dining restaurants; like the Four Seasons or the Mangroove Marriott. You don’t need a coat and tie by any means, but they would probably not let you in wearing a Tank Top.

Come on down baby!

See you soon.
