When you are living in Costa Rica, you soon might miss your countrymen, your own traditions and to be able to speak your own language. Some nationalities are well presented in Costa Rica and some are not. There might be certain specialty foods from the homeland that you cannot purchase here or don’t know where to go. Bouillabaisse, Italian antipasto, Frikandel speciaal, Smörgåsbord, Moussaka, Shoarma and so many typical food specialties that you will start missing after a while if you don’t know how to cook it or you can’t get the ingredients in Costa Rica. Let's try to find home away from home for you in this blog today.
There are several clubs of different nationalities in Costa Rica, with and without a clubhouse. Most gather only when there are special occasions or typical local holidays and are mainly organized by their embassies. I usually try to keep my blogs short and powerful but since there are so many nationalities living in Costa Rica, I felt I had to touch base with the largest groups at least.
