    Costa Rica is a fascinating country- I loved staying with a host family because it was great having Spanish lessons whilst being able to talk to the host family in Spanish in the evenings.My gap year diver representative was really helpful. I went in July which falls within the rainy season, so don't expect great visibility, but the diving was still fantastic and I saw loads of wicked stuff. There were loads of other activities on offer aside from diving- my highlights were the canopy safari tour and the guided tour through the Manuel Antonio national park.
