Travel to Costa Rica
There’s nothing quite like the rainforests of the “Rich Coast” to get the adrenaline pumping. At its heart, the Central American country boasts an epic landscape that is home to nearly 5 percent of the world’s biodiversity. Discover how fragile these endangered ecosystems are as you travel through different rainforest preserves and unearth dazzling displays of color and sound.
