The Myth of Costa Rica as an Island

If you’ve been a long-time expat living and working in Costa Rica, then you likely know all about the "Costa Rica island myth". The Costa Rica expat and travel social media groups are always full of people assuming Costa Rica is an island, asking about what places on "the island" to visit, where the best place on "the island" to live is, among others. It's been going on for as long as social media groups have existed and it still happens today. Here at Costa Rican Vacations, it's been going on for even longer than that. We've been dealing with this misconception since 1999, and we think it's time to address it.
