Costa Rica has long been touted as a paradise—clean beaches, active volcanoes, national parks teeming with wildlife, and plenty of activities for those with an adventurous spirit. Our journey took us through three different areas--the central valley, the Arenal Volcano, and Manuel Antonio along the Pacific Coast. On every level, the country exceeded our expectations. We filled each day with something different—hiking, zip lining, peering into a volcano crater, visiting an organic pineapple farm, crossing a series of hanging bridges, volunteering at a wildlife rescue center, crawling through dark caves, tasting treats from a local market, and more. The common thread that tied all our experiences together was the beautiful spirit of the people we met. Warm, gracious, and infused with a love of their country, the people were the best part.
