The Tico Times Dispatch: Costa Rican love stories

February 15, 2019

We have a special episode of The Tico Times Dispatch for this year’s Valentine’s Day. We asked readers and staff to send us their Costa Rican love stories to share with the world. Some are tales of romantic love, others involve backseat encounters in Costa Rican cabs and some are downright animalistic.

Check out the episode right here:
