My latest trip to Costa Rica had a common theme: you don’t have to sacrifice luxury for adventure. Yes, it’s true. You can have it all – authentic adventure and luxury in one trip! My adventure brought me off the beaten path to the wild southern zones of Costa Rica and to the coffee country […]

6 Reasons To Add Monteverde To Your Bucket List

The Monteverde Cloud Forest, a cool misty forest shrouded in greenery, has a truly majestic quality about it.

And I feel compelled to set the record straight. I. […]
