Costa Rica: Accessible Adventure, Beauty, and Incredible Nature
Wild, Beautiful, and Facinating
Costa Rica is a place of contrasts. From the beautiful beaches, to the little shacks; from the tiny golden butterfly cocoons to the gigantic rain forest canopy filled with animals and danger.
Interested in visiting a place with adventure, friendly people, relaxing beaches and resorts, and a wide variety of activities? Costa Rica is the place to go!
Whether you're hanging from a rope in the huge canopy of trees in the rain forest or lying on the sunny beaches, you'll be sure to want to return to this fascinating country.
Gorgeous Butterflies with Irridescent Blue Wings
I've never seen butterflies like this before Costa Rica. They are absolutely astounding! This one looked almost like a normal moth, but when it fluttered its wings there was blue iridescent light coming from inside where the wings had been folded. So amazing!
If you like butterflies and cocoons and everything surrounding this incredible insect, Costa Rica is the place to see them!

Things You Can Do in Costa Rica on One Visit - That's What I Said--One Visit!
The variety is endless, but my list will have to be short. The following are some of the interesting activities one can participate in when they visit Costa Rica:
- Feed a "float" of hungry crocodiles.
- Visit the butterfly farm and watch gorgeous butterflies emerge from even more amazing cocoons.
- Lie on the beach and sun yourself.
- Swim in the waves of the warm ocean.
- Rappel from the gigantic canopy in the rain forest from tree to tree.
- Visit the shops and buy locally-made souvenirs.
- Go on a hike to the top of an active volcano.
- Hike to beautiful waterfalls that defy explanation.
- Have some awesome freshgrown coffee!
Where to Go for Your First Stop, That's the Question!
Do you know what a group of crocodiles is called? The word for a group of two or more crocodiles is a "float."
In Costa Rica, you can visit floats of crocodiles and feed them chickens! Talk about a feeding frenzy!
It's a lot more exciting to do this sort of thing in the wild than it is at some confined zoo. The danger is real, the animals are wild, and the excitement is worth it!
Incredible Flowers That Look Like They're from Another Planet
There are plenty here! Whether you're hanging over a waterfall, swinging from the trees in the rain forest, or peering into an active volcano, there are no shortages of adventures for the non-acrophobic!
Not for the Faint of Heart!
Not a Simple Procedure--You Need Gear. They've Got It Ready for You!

Picture yourself on this beach. I can definitely picture myself there! The sunsets are beautiful and the beaches are just waiting for you.
Waterfalls That Are Most Astounding
In the rain forest there are incredible waterfalls that send their spray out for a mile around. They're some of the loveliest I've ever seen in a jungle!
The Canopy of the Rain Forest
Talk about cliffhangers, this is the way to do it if you love adventure! Rappelling from the canopy of the rain forest that is so far up you're almost in the clouds! Definitely not for the faint of heart, for sure!
I've never seen cocoons this beautiful till I saw these. They are every iridescent color along with gold and silver arranged in ways the most inventive of man could never think of! A sure testament to the fact that God created them!
