In the last five years I've traveled across Costa Rica, mostly visiting pineapple farms. One of the blessings to visit this lovely country is the abundance of tropical fruits available around the country.

Much of the fruit that is grown in Costa Rica is commercialized domestically at the roadside fruit stands. In all of Latin America, there are few countries with the abundance, quality, consistency and diversity of fruits as seen in Costa Rica.

Costa Rica has many varieties of mangos, pineapples, passionfruit, coconuts, mamey, mangosteen, rambutan, papaya, cherimoya, avocados and many other fruits. Furthermore, because these fruits are grown in a variety of altitudes and micro climates around the country, tropical fruits are available for extended seasons.

In this post I've shared a few photos I've taken when visiting the roadside fruit markets in Costa Rica. Pura Vida!
