Maybe being named #5 on the Top 10 Eco-Friendly Countries list helped a bit, but Costa Rica is now known as one of the world’s best places to visit for an active trip. From zip-lining, horseback riding, extreme tubing (dude!), hiking, and maybe even a little rappelling for good measure, Costa Rica offers a huge array for one to endanger their life and get an extreme adrenaline rush, all at the same time.
Now that I have my health insurance all lined up and have little concern for my personal safety, when’s the best time to go and bungee jump into that volcanic crater, you ask? Well, according to Costa Rica itself, temperatures vary little throughout the year, so you’re best bet is to try to aim for one of the dry seasons: December – February (cool but clear) and March – April (hot but clear). Actually, the Rica looks amazing and I can’t wait to go one day soon. Now where did I pack away all of my skydiving gear . . . ?
