Report on one of the places that were a "must" in my life; Costa Rica and Panama.
And, as a lover of nature in general, but especially of animals and diving, I had been wanting to visit these two Central American countries for years. Emerald green, I think that is the best way to define the trip; Costa Rica has such a rich and extensive diversity of fauna and flora that it is difficult to describe. I had the privilege of diving with whales, sharks, turtles, moray eels, I saw snakes, tarantulas, leaf cutter ants, mosquitoes like airplanes, armadillos, vultures ... Anyway, if we add to that some incredible landscapes I think it is without a doubt one of the best trips I have ever done in my life.
For this trip, I recommend renting a Jeep with GPS and touring the country from end to end at your own pace and without having to depend on public or private transport. A priori it may seem a little expensive (everything in general costs more or less the same as here) but if you make numbers of what the trips in private minibusses are worth or what public transport takes, you will see that it is the best option to optimize your time, and it is not the most expensive option at all.
