ere, more than any where else, lies Costa Rica's charm. It is embodied in its forests, its unpredictable volcanos, its endless shores and its underwater marvels. If you haven't walked at least one of its jungle trails, you can't claim to have visited Costa Rica, for therein lies the essence of the country, its inner meaning, its vibrant skien of life woven between its enchanting shorelines to cover its craggy mountain chains. You can't reach out and hold it but there's something there, so that, once you've felt it, you'll never really leave Costa Rica behind, no matter where your body goes. But, enough of this. If you're here, it's time to enjoy Costa Rica's vividness. If you're not yet here, well, we'll help you to dream!
