I spent my holiday season traveling Costa Rica. We visited five different locations: San Jose, Arenal, Samara, Santa Teresa and Jaco. Each offered its own unique charm and beauty. I was amazed at the variety of landscape, foliage and wildlife in Costa Rica and have decided it is the most beautiful country I have visited to date. We enjoyed relaxing time on the beach, horseback riding, canyoning, ziplining and hiking. My favorite day was relaxing on the beach on Christmas in our santa claus hats, we got a smile and Feliz Navidad from everyone we passed.
