Search property number 681393. There's plenty of similar ones in the area. No shortage of gorgeous villas at very affordable prices

Anyone successful with contacting chabad of Costa Rica ? I tried emailing  them from their website but haven't heard back?

Also, anyone know of a good hotel to stay in San Jose to be close to Jewish community for shobbas?

Anyone ever go first weeks of November? I know its technically still rainy season, but does that mean a short thunderstorm or constant rain?

Short thunderstorm. Usually about an hour or two

I went in August which is just as "rainy" as November. It was well worth it and as long as you plan your day properly the rain shouldn't affect you at all

Does anyone know about the level of kashrus of the kosher store in SJO? Is it generally accepted?

I think so. It should be under the certification of the chabad rabbi there.

Does AA fly to Costa Rica ? I seem to recall seeing that they recently launched a flight there, but can't seem to find any flights ?

Sure they do. Not from NY if that's what you're implying, but they definitely fly to Costa Rica.
