From the epic volcanoes at Arenal and zip lining in Monteverde, to the wildlife on the Pacific and Caribbean coasts, Costa Rica is a country full of amazing landscapes and some amazing adventures. One of the best ways to get a small taste of everything is to rent a car and head off on an ultimate road trip!
