I first fell in love with Costa Rica when I spent a year of my A-Levels learning about what an amazing country it is. So I managed to convince my friends to come and visit this beautiful country with me and we was not disappointed.
IMAGINE fruit stalls on the corner of every highway, old American style school buses , a tropical climate of warm 33 temperatures in the day and hour downpours in the afternoon. Monkeys, Coatis, Raccoons, toucans and parrots swinging from the lush vegetation with black sand beaches and volcanos shaping the coastline – Costa Rica you truly have stolen my heart.
Costa Rica is in Central America connecting the USA with South America, not only is it rated the happiest nation to live in it is also named one of the most biodiverse.
Costa Rica offers everything from a relaxing holiday in the sun to an adventure holiday exploring all the land has to offer.
We stayed on the pacific ocean side (Guanacaste region) which was a mountainous region with rich rainforest and sunsets to die for!!!
The only thing I regret is not seeing any wild sloths – Another reason to go back right?
We zip wired through a jungle (& an active volcano), visited the local town of Coco Loco, went on a speedboat trip on the pacific & went horseback riding through the rainforest I recommend each & every one of them – they made our trip & allowed us to see the real Costa Rica.
(We travelled from the UK direct (11 hours) to Liberia airport with TUI – would highly recommend was both convenient & affordable)
