This is just a short blog on how teachers.net and social media has affected a small village in the mountains of Costa Rica. I moved to Costa Rica 10 years and all I wanted to do was to live in a rural village and raft the rivers of Costa Rica. The life is very relaxed and income is low. I wanted to start a business and had a little cash to invest. The families around the village I was in were some of the most nicest people you could imagine. We wanted to bring student groups down and show them Costa Rican culture and adventure offering an income to the families and fun for the kids.
