Costa Rica offers the perfect combination of adventure and relaxation, with endless beaches and abundant wildlife. I enjoyed a spot of luxury during my last visit, staying at the Pacuare Lodge on the banks of the river. Of course, the best way to arrive is by white-water rafting down the river – spectacular!
