Begin your journey in one of the most beautiful countries we've ever seen.  We recommend Monteverde, the cloud forest in the middle of the jungle.  Spend three relatively wet days exploring the wilderness and sightseeing, and definitely include both canyoning and zip lining for the more adventurous of you!  After you've had enough, head for some relative R&R in Arenal, a still active volcano.  Take a horseback ride or helicopter around the volcano, and check out the hot springs.  Your last stop is in Tamarindo, a beach town with a natural habitat for sea turtles and great surfing!  We know, you don't want to come home, but you probably can't stay forever...
