Costa Rica is so diverse with wildlife and plants, it’s beautiful! We really enjoyed ziplining! Fishing is something to definitely do if you enjoy fishing. We fished in the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Ocean, the pacific had the best fishing. We caught mahi mahi, wahoo and a rooster fish. The hanging bridges in Arenal were also beautiful, you really get to experience the jungles. Allen Samuels house of travel was excellent to work with. Very accommodating and helpful, especially during Covid, Bambi is the best! -Meghan
