Costa Rica - Culture
While the art scene is not up to European levels, you will find a surprising variety of theaters, art galleries and performances by international artists considering the size of the country and its small population. There are also numerous museums, the most popular being the National Museum, the Jade Museum, the Gold Museum and the Children's Museum.
Because of the high level of tourism and foreign residents, there are a great number of fantastic restaurants throughout the country. One beach town, Tamarindo, has one restaurant for every 10 permanent residents! Eating out here can be very inexpensive and you will find something good no matter what you are in the mood for. The local cuisine is fairly plain, with dishes similar to other Latin American countries and relying heavily on rice, chicken and black beans. The prototypical dish is Gallo Pinto, a mixture of rice and black beans, topped with light sour cream and traditionally eaten for breakfast with bread and fruits.
