CEA MOJO on Finding Adventure in Costa Rica

Finding adventure in Costa Rica has been nothing short of a piece of "queque", the hardest part is figuring out what to cram in your surprisingly short time here.  I've traveled all around this country, almost every weekend, and still have plenty that I wish to see and do.  Every weekend for an entire month CEA had the best excursions planned for our group, including ziplining, trekking down to a waterfall, and seeing volcanoes.  They were well-organized, many meals were included, and it was a great bonding opportunity with all of the students in the CEA program.    I wish I had more time here, and I will truly miss Costa Rica when I have to leave in less than four weeks.
