MY FAVORITE TOUR

By: Justin

 

Some people would say they like doing rafting or zip-lining, other people would rather go hiking in the forest or swimming in the river. In my case, when I think of my favorite tour, the first thought that comes to my mind is always the same: travel.

 

Since I’m working in tourism, I realized something: every year thousands of tourists come from all around the world to Costa Rica looking for a great and unforgettable experience. It’s not a secret that our country has incredible and unique destinations, places that will take your breath away and make you feel like you’re in paradise. A great combination of volcanoes, beaches, national parks and a huge diversity of wildlife: that’s what Costa Rica offers to the world.

 

So, if these people travel for hours coming from the other side of the planet to see the beauty of our country, why don’t we do the same? It’s easy for us to just take a bus, travel for a couple of hours, and get to one of these amazing places.

 

I enjoy travelling through my country and visiting those places that make Costa Rica an amazing destination. However, I’m not the kind of traveler who arranges everything in advance. I’ve learned that when you plan a trip, things don’t always go the way you’re expecting, so that’s why I’d rather get to the place and then improvise. All that I need to bring with me is some money, my camera (so important), enough time, and the willingness to have a great adventure.

 

At the moment, I’m focused on discovering every hidden corner of the country—those places that some people don’t even know exist. Despite that fact that Costa Rica is a small country, I have a huge list of destinations that I have yet to visit, such as Chirripo, Corcovado, Puerto Viejo, Rincon de la Vieja, and Tortuguero, among others. Also, I have a really interesting trip in mind, but it will take a little longer to do because it requires enough time and money. When I think about travelling abroad, South America is the first destination on my list. Each country has something different to offer in terms of culture, customs, typical foods, and unique locations. However, I want to know these places like the locals do. Because of this, I’d go backpacking from country to country, eating local food, using public transportation, and staying in local lodgings. I consider that the best way to live a real experience. But with that said, before going on this trip I want to reach some personal goals first.

 

In conclusion, here’s a thought I’d like to share: “Some people go through life spending their time working very hard for the purpose of saving money, paying their children’s college tuition, buying a new car, and building their own house, but I am someone who believes that we all are born with a bigger purpose than just working, paying bills, and dying.” One day we will leave this world behind, so live a life you can remember. Life is a long list of opportunities and there is an enormous world full of wonders waiting out there for you, so go for it!
