In the 7th chapter from the 31st Season the Simpsons come for a vacation to Costa Rica, and it was named: “The Simpsons Visit the Paradise”

Marge is really excited about the invitation she received from Millhouse’s Mom to join them on a multi-family trip.

They are a little worried about paying the trip because it seems to be a lot of money, but they finally realize that The Van Houten family was scamming them, taking advantage of the guests to charge a lot more extra money.

In the end, they loved their visit to Costa Rica and really lived the “Pura Vida”.
