 That quote rings very true with me. I've been fortunate to have been in the travel indus...

A few years ago I traveled around Costa Rica for a week. What an amazing trip!

  I went on one of the longest ziplines in Costa Rica located in Manuel Antonio Natl Park. A funny thing happened to me that I will never forget!

 I was on one of the longest parts of a zipline and I stopped about 20 feet from the end platform(not by choice)  The guide slowly creeped out to get me since I was a bit panicky. He calmed me down and whispered to me and told me to look over my shoulder. Two feet away was a sloth hanging from the branch. Right there next to me. Chewing on some leaves. He couldn't care less about me! There he was. His fuzzy little head and his mossy green body. I could have reached out and touched him!  It was amazing.

We saw about 15 sloth during the week but never this close.

We fed spider monkeys right from our balcony of the hotel and watched them swing from tree to tree.  The huge blue neon butterflies were everywhere too. 

  Costa Rica is a wonderful place for adventure. I can help make this a trip of a lifetime for you!
