Costa Rica is recommended to anyone looking for a great herp adventure.
I have wanted to explore the rain forest ever since I was a kid, and I finally had the chance to do so while on my honeymoon in Costa Rica. My wife, Michelle, and I set up our trip to start on the island’s Caribbean side and travel across to the Pacific side.
Costa Rica means “rich coast” in Spanish. Slightly smaller than West Virginia, this Central American country has coastal plains separated by rugged mountains and volcanoes. The climate is tropical and subtropical. Temperatures usually linger around 80 degrees Fahrenheit, and the average yearly rainfall is 200 inches. December through April is the dry season, and May through November is the rainy season.
