Don't forget the dutch startpagina http://costarica.pagina.nl ;-)

I maintained this page for almost 4 years after a visit to Costa Rica. A few month later I also started a forum (http://www.prikpagina.nl/list.php?f=843) with the help of a couple of emigrated dutch people who have some hostels in Costa Rica. They answer a lot of questions with enormous passion for Costa Rica without making any promotion for the hostels, only their URL is added and the end of their messages in the forum.

It resulted in a win-win situation although we don't pay eachother a penny; They receive more bookings from Holland, the quality of the forum is high and more and more people visit the forum before and after their visit to Costa Rica.

After four years I've decided to let another Costa Rica fan maintain the page. I want to blog more. I posted a message to let anyone know this, the respons on this form the community was emotional for me (http://www.prikpagina.nl/read.php?f=843&i=12441&t=12441)

It't a great experience to see these things happening on the net and get a online relationship with people you've never met face to face.

Pura vida,

I won't make longer comments then this, don't worry :-)
