"One of the things that makes Costa Rica so special is that it is probably the closest most Americans can get to real 'Indiana Jones' country. Many regard this small and unique country as the most biodiverse in the world. I love the fact that you can drive from the Pacific coast to the Atlantic coast in a day, and go from being drenched one minute in torrential rain to basking in glorious bright sunshine the next. There are a large number of rustic, eco-friendly lodges to go along with the nation’s strong green policy. Adventure is abundant here, thanks to activities ranging from world-class surfing to wild river rafting. A few years ago I spent the night sleeping in the jungle canopy about 100 feet above the ground, I woke up to the smell of fresh coffee as my host came flying between the trees on a cable to deliver us some local brew."
