    What would be the safest route to drive through central america to end up in Puerto Jimenez, Costa Rica. We want to enter into Mexico from Texas, assuming that would be the shortest/safest route to drive. Any suggestions would be welcome

    Hi, I am sailing from Norway to Australia at the moment, and have to leave my family, and boat somewhere safe for two weeks, can anyone give me an idea if PJ, or indeed anywhere in that area is safe? My children are 11 & 9 yrs old.
    Many thanks for any comments/suggestions.

    Osa Peninsula advice - Where to go, lodging and adventure tours?

    Hi all, We are heading to CR end of May and considering Osa as a place to visit for about 4 -5 days. We are looking for adventurous activities, beautiful beaches, an authentic/rustic experience and moderate prices. My questions to you are:
    1 - Which part of Osa (jimenez, drake bay, etc) best accomplishes this? (adventurous activities, beautiful beaches, an authentic/rustic experience and moderate prices)
    2 - Is there any suggested lodging that is moderately priced and lends a clean but nature-oriented experience?
    3 - What are some of the best activities for two highly curious, eco-loving and adventurous people?

    Thanks for offering your help!!

    I've heard that there are sicknesses transmitted by mosquitos, and that DEET should be applied continuously -- Is that true, and if so, any other precautions need to be taken? What about poisionous insects?
