Costa Rica

From lush rainforests greeting the shores of the ocean to lush rainforests reaching into the clouds, there is no wonder why the unofficial slogan of Costa Rica is 'pura vida' or pure life. I had the opportunity to observe tremendous sites of natural beauty within this rich coast  (Spanish meaning of Costa Rica), and I would love to show you my journey, hoping to inspire you to consider visiting this outstanding country.
