Costa Rica is definitely worth a visit!

We had a great itinerary planned to see rugged mountain ranges, volcanoes, rivers and the wildlife and birds. It exceeded our expectations. A great mix of activities including bird watching, hanging bridges walks and hiking through National Parks) was added to by expert and enthusiastic guides. Even San Jose, the capital, was a very pleasant surprise with some wonderful museums and delightful “barrios” to wander in. Everyone in Costa Rica is very friendly and the coffee is delicious!
