Horse Back Riding to Epic Waterfalls

BY TARA BURKE

Another thing that we really wanted to do in Costa Rica was go horse back riding. A lot of my friends tease me for being a horse girl even though before this trip I had never ridden a horse. I watched one series where I learned more about horses and whenever any topic about horses came up I’d always have something to say about it, so from then on I was horse girl, haha! So as many can attest, I was excited to actually ride a horse and to a beautiful waterfall nonetheless!

Rainforest Hiking – Corcovado National Park

BY TARA BURKE

One of our main missions while visiting Costa Rica was to truly experience its rich biodiversity. Corcovado National Park spans just over 103,000 acres of tropical rainforest and holds a very diverse population of wildlife – 10% of all mammals that inhabit the Americas can be found within Corcovado National Park. In turn, we thought Costa Rica’s largest park fit the bill perfectly for exploring the rainforest.
