Traveling Through The Volcanoes & Hiking Through Costa Rica:

 

Having gone to college with a girl who was from Costa Rica, I began to love the country a bit more. Her accent was very intriguing but the way she spoke of her country made me want to explore it one day. Costa Rica is known for their hiking and adventures beyond the wilderness. Their volcanoes are pretty great and their waterfalls are as well.  The forests in the country, make it feel a bit more homey but you are literally surrounded by the forest while jumping into the waterfall. This part of the country, made me fall in love very quickly.

 

Aside from the volcanoes, I wholeheartedly just want to grab my sneakers and backpack through the trails of Costa Rica. Their falls are beautiful and none like I have ever seen before. Except for the one waterfall I experienced in the mountains of Pennsylvania. Still, nothing compares to a different countries falls.

 

One of Costa Rica’s most known volcanoes is the Arenal Volcano. It is one that is active quite frequently. This volcano is more than 5,000 feet high. For many years this volcano never erupted. It was very dormant and in the 1960s, awoke from its slumber and became active, all of this from an earthquake that shook and rattled the volcano.

 

The next places to see on the island are clearly the beaches. These beaches are some of the best on the pacific coast aside from the ones in Hawaii. One of the best places to explore the water would be the Manuel Antonio National Park. This national park is known to some of the best sites. It has hidden coves, untamed beaches, nature trails, and rainforest. This national park is spread between a 3 mile distance and I am sure that the beaches are a beauty, but as well as the coves, trails, and the rainforest.

 

The last place on Costa Rica that would be on my personal bucket list would be the Montverde Cloud Forest Biological Reserve. This specific forest is a beauty and to my hearts desire, I would take a million photos on the bridge. The forest has quite a bit of wildlife and as it is a very big tourist attraction, many enjoy it because of its wildlife. In the middle of this forest lies a skywalk bridge which takes you right through the wildlife scenery, as well as, ziplining. Ziplining through the forest is truly a goal of mine to do because you see everything swinging through the jungle. I am sure it is also very breathtaking.

 

Aside from many of these attractions being tourist hulls, they are all quite beautiful and places I would enjoy taking my spouse or in fact my family. And today, you do not see many places like Costa Rica that preserve their wildlife and do everything they can to protect it. However, hiking the volcanoes and putting my feet into the clear blue water would be a journey as well.
