comment What are our visa options for staying in Costa Rica?
I understand where you are coming from, but the thing is, the work part isn't an issue. I don't want to go into detail about our personal lives like that on an open forum. And in the question, it says that his company is moving him to work and it is an online company. So, the working on the tourist visa isn't a problem. We want to stay there while he works online from home.

Not saying that we are going to be staying there permanently. It might be just a year. So, if someone knows how to get a TOURIST visa for a year. That can work.

Mark, I tried to edit the spelling of Meclizine. It wouldn't let me. If you wouldn't mind fixing that. Thanks!

comment How to avoid getting motion sickness?
Fair enough. Just as a nurse, I highly recommend the medications I posted on the previous posts. They work extremely well for motion sickness and would probably work even better when combined with nonmedicinal techniques. But antivert and zofran are the drugs of choice in my professional option when combating motion sickness.

Just curious, what do you have against the medicines? They do work really well.

Really? It is awesome! Although, I have only been able to find one that I really like and it is the Justin's Peanut Butter. Also comes in Almond and Hazelnut butter.

comment Avoiding air travel sickness without Dramamine/Dimenhydrinate or other drugs
Not a problem. I just wanted to speak from a medical perspective and give you the advice on what I know that works from personal and professional experience. :) I hope that she is able to find something that works for her so you can enjoy your trips! And it never hurts to have a backup plan! :)

comment Is there a list of free accomodation resources?
Thank you for that! Made my day. I have the best hosts to recommend if you ever want to try it when you go to New York City. Seriously, these people make me want to start my own place to have people stay! :)

Meclizine is supposed to be available over the counter, but zofran is not available. And meclizine may help with the nausea and vomiting, but if the nausea is severe, again, I recommend getting the zofran.

Airbnb is the best place in my opinion. We only stay there. Definitely worth looking at. Hosts are helpful in discovering what you want to get out of your vacation and will even offer suggestions on cheap ways to travel or things to see that aren't typical tourist attractions. You should check it out.

comment Which beaches you must see in your lifetime?
While it is subjective and you can get many different answers, many different responses can help others plan their vacations. I think with closing certain questions like this, it makes people not want to ask questions that they want answered on a travel website. This is supposed to be a place where people can ask questions from "experts", and I just want people to feel like they can ask questions without fear of them being closed down.

comment Best time to buy Airline tickets to Shanghai/Hong Kong from USA (Dallas/Fort Worth)?
I just checked Bing, and they are giving me prices that are way more than CheapOAir (over $1000 more). I have been giving my boyfriend all the updates, and I think we are going to but tickets soon before the prices go up.

Thanks! I will check out bing travel. I have been searching around different travel booking sites, and each one is quoting me different prices.
