Hello! I am Susan and I'm a development economist and a writer. I am from Texas in the U.S., but I’ve been living in Costa Rica for over 15 years. In ...development my focus is helping people improve their productivity (farms and businesses) as a way to enhance the quality of life for themselves and their children. This has taken me to many countries. People often ask me “Where is your favorite place?” My answer is that I don’t have a favorite because every place has wonderful things to appreciate and admire. From amazing landscapes, to music, foods and cultural traditions, I love discovering the specialness of each place. By writing about the fun and fabulous ecotourism hotspots in my adopted country, Costa Rica, I hope to inspire you to come and see for yourself!
