The Destination
Cast between the warm Caribbean Sea and the cool Pacific Ocean, Costa Rica is a place of balance. Long considered an adventurer's paradise, this Central American country boasts expansive jungles where adrenaline runs high: This might be the most epic mountain biking landscape on the planet. And when your nerves could use some rest, the other end of the spectrum—relaxation—awaits on white sand beaches beneath the palms.
