Lids for Kids

motorcycle costa rica

This scene is all too familiar in Costa Rica.  The whole family on the motorcycle, heads unprotected.  Steve thinks that, at least, the children should have helmets.

He brings child-size bicycle helmets in his luggage from the US – he finds them at Goodwill and Salvation Army for about $2 a piece – and we hand them out when we see an unprotected child.  The parents are grateful and the kids are thrilled, especially if it’s purple.




2If you have room in your luggage and want to save a noggin, bring a couple of helmets.  If you’re coming to Casa mango and Casa Papaya, we’ll help you find heads to put them on.
