Costa Rican SaintsOne of the first things a traveller notices when going to Costa Rica is that almost every town or city is named after a Saint.

California has San Jose, San Fransisco, etc. I thought it was like that from California to Argentina. After some travelling in Latin America I realised this was simply not true.
