**** edited. Before you read this…I AM NOT PREGNANT!! I have already had people contact me and I don’t want any confusion.
I think it is a known thing that when you are pregnant that you see more pregnant women right? I know that was true for me. So, since we found out the we were going to be moving to Costa Rica and in the 2 years and 4 months since we’ve been down here I can’t tell you how many times we have “coincidentally” heard Costa Rica mentioned in movies, books, and tv shows.
Some of you may have noticed this either because you have a connection with Costa Rica or because of us. Or maybe you see it with the place where you live…..I probably would’ve never noticed it but it happens a lot! Even the kids pick up on it. Here are just a few of the ones we’ve noticed.
My absolute favorite mention of Costa Rica is from my favorite TV series, “The Office.” Toby, notoriously decides to go to Costa Rica after he realizes he has no future with Pam, and Michael hates him. But he doesn’t get to enjoy the beauty and Pura Vida lifestyle because he breaks his neck zip lining￼￼￼. (this is one activity that we have enjoyed in The States but have not done here for some reason￼😏)
Of course there is Jurassic Park and anytime we are driving through some beautiful lush mountainous areas we always comment on how it feels like we’re driving through Jurassic Park￼￼.
I can’t remember the names but I have read a lot of books this year and I will just be reading along and the author will just mention Costa Rica. It’s must be a great place to escape to. It just seems so random that it is mentioned so much!
There are several “House Hunter International” episodes here in Costa Rica. Don’t get me started on those…..
Another one is murder mystery shows like dateline and 48 hours….
And of course we can’t forget the “The Tiger King’s” murder mystery…..Carole Baskin’s husband was supposed to be going off to Costa Rica. Maybe I should put up some posters with his picture on them. 🤔
I know there are more and I will add them as they come to me…..
