Costa Rica Pre-trip Embassy Visit!

*** Great day for an embassy visit today.  See you there! ***

*** This event is open ONLY to those that have signed up for the Costa Rica trip in August! ***

UPDATE #1: I will be outside in front of the Embassy of Costa Rica. Just a reminder, I'll be the one with the red kayak / ACK flag (12" x 12" in size)! Please account for Metro, traffic, and parking delays, and please arrive on time! See you there!


Let's go visit the Embassy of Costa Rica!

I've made special reservations with the Embassy of Costa Rica, in anticipation of our upcoming trip, to meet with Costa Rican diplomats and receive an official country briefing to include the history, geography, culture, and tourism of Costa Rica! We will meet up and check in outside of the embassy at 2:30pm, and go in together at 3pm.

This event is ONLY open to those that have signed up for the Costa Rica trip in August. It is NOT open to other members of our group. Please note that since the Costa Rica trip is a joint trip with the 30s & 40s Going Out Group and the Global Adventurers Traveling Group, members of those groups are also invited to this event. The average age will likely consist of those in their 30s.

Please RSVP so I have an accurate headcount I can give to the embassy.

See you there!



Metro and Parking

The closest Metro is Dupont Circle North (Red line). I suggest Metro / cabbing if you can. I also recommend using for travel planning. Don't forget to account for Metro, traffic, and parking delays. If you are driving, you will need to find street parking or a garage.

Event Check-in

We will have a master list of all those that have paid. It’s not required, but I recommend printing out your payment confirmation as a backup. When you check-in, your RSVP will be listed under the name of the Paypal or credit card account used to make payment. Typically, this is your LEGAL name as shown on your driver's license. Sometimes, it may be under a company name if you set up your Paypal or credit card account that way. If you are not sure what it is, please take a moment to log into your Paypal account (it will say "Welcome, [your account name]" at the top) or your credit card account to find out. If you are RSVP'd under someone else's payment, please use that name for check-in.

Special Needs

If you have any special needs (e.g. wheelchair, dietary for events with food, etc.), let us know in advance (a week or more before the event) and we will do our best to accommodate. If you let us know the day of the event, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to accommodate. Thank you for understanding and we appreciate the courtesy of a heads up!
