I’m not sure if it’s the higher cost, the mountains or the beauty. But Costa Rica, as they say the Switzerland of Central America, is certainly that, a country renowned for its beautiful natural features. And the friendliness of the Cost Rican people is evident as soon as you cross the border.
My quest to add a few more words to my Spanish vocabulary took me to Turrialba, a mountain village in the middle of Costa Rica. It’s there where I met a Spanish School with a difference. They were two weeks into their four week travelling program when I first met the group. Its seemed like a lot of fun, so I joined them for the last two weeks. It certainly was a lot of fun…..
…and as an added challenge, I stayed with this lovely non English speaking home stay family in Turrialba.

To top the week off, an enthralling two day 30km white water rafting trip through the middle of the jungle, camping overnight in the thick of the jungle.
