There are as many reasons to travel as there are travellers on the road. Maybe you're looking to get away from it all, to experience other cultures and learn from them. Sometimes, however, it’s all about the adventure. If you’re like me and strive for a life full of experiences, Costa Rica had better be on your short list. This Central American country offers up a virtually inexhaustible list of action-packed activities: ziplining, whitewater rafting, tree climbing, cliff jumping, jungle trekking, horseback riding, surfing, snorkeling, scuba diving. Here’s a collection of images that I snapped on a recent trip—when I took Costa Rica head-on.
