When a teenager gets to choose his birthday celebration destination and is involved with the travel planning, it’s a great day. Gage and his family traipsed through Costa Rica visiting Arenal Volcano, Monteverde Cloud Forest and Nosara.
This is Gage and here is my story about Costa Rica. It was a family vacation, but I got to choose where to go in celebration of my 13th birthday.
It was incredible! It was incredible because of just all the different experiences we had (and could have). We had really good, relaxing family time while also having times full of adrenaline and excitement! For example, we could go from lounging in the pool to zip-lining over the rain forest in the matter of one day.
The culture and over-all mentality of Costa Rica was a big contrast to the United States. People there really enjoyed the moment they were in and appreciated everything that they were given while back in the US people were rushing around and stressing. I liked the chill.
I would absolutely recommend this as a vacation destination to people of any age as Costa Rica has something for everyone. Pura Vida!
