Costa Rica is PARADISE for the adventure seeker and can please all ages of adventurers!  Now My Vacation Lady is not the biggest adventure seeker but we did out share of adventure on our 3 visits to Costa Rica and we plan adventures for our client’s vacations and honeymoons to Costa Rica all the time.
