Costa Rica is one of the top destinations for Wanderers and it is easy to see why. Featuring two gorgeous coastlines, abundant wildlife, awesome adventure sports, and acres of national parks, this Central American country is a great pick for a couple that loves nature or is seeking adventure.

Here are our top five things to do while in Costa Rica:

Raft the Pacuare: Costa Rica is home to some amazing rafting, and the Pacuare is considered the best of the many raftable rivers.

Ziplining in the Cloud Forest: Ziplining was invented in Costa Rica, and one of the most popular places to do it is in the cloud forests of Santa Elena and Monteverde.

Relaxing in Hot Springs: Arenal Volcano is surrounded by naturally occurring hot springs. Remember to include an evening for soaking in warm waters and enjoying each other’s company.

Wanderable’s Favorite Local Flavors

One of our favorite parts of traveling is eating the local cuisine, and from what we can tell most Wanderable users agree. Food can inspire travel (we have a friend who went on a 10 week trip to Asia after reading an article in the New York Times about Malaysian cuisine), can help us better understand a culture, and can remind us of places we’ve visited. Here are some of our favorite dishes from some of our favorite places to travel.

Gallo Pinto, Costa Rica.  This Costa Rican mix of rice and beans is a breakfast mainstay in the land of pura vida. We love it most with salsa Linzano, a side of sweet plantains and a bit of natilla (sour cream).
