Ariel lives in a village with his parents and younger brother, as well as with all his pets: rabbits, dogs, hens, and fish. When he grows up, he’d like to be a veterinarian. His favorite sport is football. One of the most interesting celebrities from San Jose is Keylor Navas, an international football player and goalie for Costa Rica’s national team.
If you came to visit Ariel, he would serve you gallo pinto, a traditional dish made with rice and beans, and chorreadas, popular sweet corn pancakes. He would also bring you to San Gerardo de Dota, Uvita Beach, and the place where his grandfather grows coffee and blackberries.
