Costa Rica – A Dream Holiday Destination

*This is a collaborative post Costa Rica looks amazing, doesn’t it? I’d say it’s near the top of my list when it comes to countries I’d love to visit. With stunning coastlines, thriving forests and a whole lot of volcanoes, it looks like the place of dreams. In fact, I have been doing a bit of dreaming, and I’ve put together an idea of my perfect Costa Rican Holiday.

I couldn’t live without the internet. Lets face it, many of us are in that same position.
