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.

Costa Rica has been growing as a hot bed for travel since the early 1990s. A quarter of the country is dedicated as a protected area or national park. As Costa Rica has become renowned for its outdoor beauty, the ecotourism has grown and encouraged a different type of travel. If you are looking to spend more time outdoors while you travel, Costa Rica is the perfect place for you.
