Costa Rica, a touch of the tropics, some may say. I say it’s more of a dive, head first, into a region soaked in biodiversity and engulfed by environmental awareness, for Costa Rica is so much more than just a tourist beach get away. This last summer I went on a tour with the spanish club at my school. We went to Costa Rica with an educational tour company, Education First Tours. With this particular tour company I did more than see Costa Rica, I experienced it.
