Costa Rica: Costa Rica is, without a doubt, one of the most beautiful places on Earth. Catch a wave, bathe under a waterfall, or hike through clouds in a mountaintop cloud forest in the dictionary definition of “paradise.” Glide through a rain forest canopy in a floating gondola, soak yourself in waters heated by an active volcano, or watch rare sea turtles and crocodiles. Visit Ticos and enjoy the bountiful biodiversity and the complete contentment that comes with the “pura vida,” the “pure life”of Costa Rica. Don't worry; the beauty of this country is that you can change your surroundings as quickly as you change your mind.
