Destination Spotlight: Costa Rica

Surfing the waves of the Pacific as the sun gently dips below the horizon. Climbing rainforest trails, spotting wildlife along the way. Popping into a soda (a local diner-type establishment serving traditional Costa Rican food) to feast on casado, a heaping plate of rice, beans, salad, and perhaps meat. Submerging your weary bones in the hot springs near Arenal Volcano.
