Lush, vibrant Costa Rica
Costa Rica is a world leader in conservation, and is nearly unparalleled when it comes to biodiversity. That makes it a nature-lovers’ paradise! “It’s unbelievable!” says Go Ahead staffer Tom. “In a week, you can tour jungles, visit active volcanos, sit on stunning beaches, and more.” Costa Rica is a must-see this year for eco-conscious travelers who want to see the power of environmental protections in action. Of the country’s 28 national parks, you’ll hit three of the most famous on tour—Manuel Antonio, Tortuguero, and Arenal Volcano National Park.
“Both the scenery and the wildlife wowed, but it was truly the locals who made for an epic trip. They showed us what pura vida was all about.”
— Lauren, Go Ahead staffer
