A Few Fun Facts

10. Did you know Costa Ricans call 'Speed Bumps' son muertos. In English, that means "Dead Persons". 9. Kind of funny considering their word for pedestrian in English means "Target". haha

8. In English, we say, "She had a baby" but what Costa Ricans say means "She gave light" in English. Pretty cool.

7. MacDonald's, Burger King and all the others fast food places have HOME DELIVERY in Costa Rica! Just doing their part in supporting international obesity... however, I don't believe Costa Ricans have this problem like us Americans do. haha

6. In Costa Rica, it is not uncommon to give coffee to babies (in their bottle, with milk) and to young children. Could you imagine a two year old on espresso???

5. Costa Rica has a population of 4.5 million and a life expectancy of almost 77 years - one of the highest in the world.

4. In the Western Hemisphere, Costa Rica is the only country without an army or military of any kind

3. Bananas and coffee are the two primary agricultural exports from Costa Rica.

2. In Costa Rica, there are more than 34,000 species of insects! ew

1. And Fun Fact number one is that ISAAC AND I ARE GOING TO COSTA RICA ON OUR HONEYMOON!!!!!

This is extremely exciting news for us to share because we have been praying about this for the past year and nothing seemed to be working out. We tried so many different places but there was always something wrong; travel time was too much, airfare was too expensive, time difference and jet lag would be too extreme, hotels were not quite honeymoon ideal. So of course we turned to God and prayed, knowing that he would lead us to the perfect place in His prefect timing. And he did as of today, it all fell into place and we are so so so entirely blessed. So May 8th we are going to be well on our way to this tropical paradise...

Thank you Jesus. Beyond excited would be an understatement.


  1. Take me with you!!! Or...uh...something not as creepy. :)

  2. So fun and exciting for you guys! Looks absolutely fabulous!
