Travel Articles: Manuel Antonio
Adventure Life to the Rescue!
When a student group was notified that their international spring trip was cancelled by school administration for security concerns, they were crushed.

New York Times Features Costa Rica
I was reading the New York Times this weekend, and noticed that the #1 Most Emailed article was about travel in Costa Rica.
