Fleeting

Costa Rica is an amazing place. While the country has only about 0.1% of the world's landmass, it contains 5% of the world's biodiversity. I was there many years ago, and yet, it was such a powerful experience that I still think about it. This is a country no larger than the state of Virginia yet is has more butterflies than any single continent.

If you think that sleeping in a tree-house only to be awoken by a troop of Howler Monkeys outside your window is cool, or if you think moonlight skinny dipping in a hot spring at the base of live volcano while you are treated to a spectacular lava light show is your idea of an adventure, then you should seriously consider visiting Costa Rica, as it is not going to last forever... the cloud forests are receding every year and will soon be gone.
