Went down to Costa Rica a few months ago, which was my second trip to that country. Cool place, but I don't recommend going in the summer. Hot as hell. Aside from that though, there are a lot of interesting things you can get into. My favorite part was getting a local guide who brought us into some really remote areas and introduced us to some farmers. Specifically a banana farmer and some guys working on the African Palm Oil Plantations. That was a really cool thing to see. It's archaic backbreaking work, for what I can only imagine to be terrible wages. And as always, we managed to consume too much local food and beer. Good times.
