Rafting the Pacuare River, Costa Rica

The Amateur Traveler talks about adventure travel in Costa Rica.

From rafting on the Pacuare river and ziplining through the Monteverde Cloud forest to snorkeling off the Nicoya Peninsula, Costa Rica can be a great destination for someone with a sense of adventure. Even with all that adventure, there is still time for eco-tours, coffee, and chocolate plantation tours and just lying on a beach. But you have to be willing to get in a 4 wheel drive vehicle and tackle some rough roads to see some of the best spots in Costa Rica.

Host Chris Christensen talks about his recent trip to Costa Rica. He talks about why you should try a zipline and why you should not do it in a thunderstorm… as he did.
