What a beautiful country! The weather we experienced was perfect with plenty of sunshine and brilliant sunsets. The beaches and rainforests and zip lines lived up to their reputation. All the food was fresh and delicious and the drinks delightful. The native animals made guest appearances just at the right times to highlight our festivities. But the main joy were the people—kind and patient and friendly!! This family vacation was my first visit to Costa Rica, but with all these attributes along with the ease of travel, there will be more.
