Awesome Costa Rica Tour

I learned so much about this beautiful country, not just about the wildlife, and plants, but maybe most importantly about respect and passion for where you are from. Will I come back for another Costa Rica Tour again? Already working with Adventure Life on my next trip. They have a saying in this country: Pura Vida ( Life is good). So really thats all I can say right now Pura Vida!!!!!!!!
