Costa Rica - Active travellers can surf, hike, snorkel and spot wildlife for starters. The incredibly varied topography means you can cruise the cloud forest one day, visit an active volcano the next, and finish relaxing on a hot sandy beach. Adrenaline junkies have a myriad ways to make mothers worry – among them zipping through canopy lines hundreds of meters long and riding the rough surf of the Pacific. Choice and variety name the game.
Summer means surfing....you do surf, don't you? Maybe not quite at the pro level, but that's not the point..the point is catching a good set of waves at sunrise or sunset and learning about yourself and the ocean, all in one enjoyable adrenaline burst...surfing is one of those sports that is, in every way, total immersion.
the danger is that for many the thrill of speed starts around 80 and adrenaline hits like an afterburner. You're already going "too" fast... but fear is lain aside and the shit-eating grin takes a long time to fade once the side stand goes down. Crack with a throttle.
