During a visit in Costa Rica, it’s part of the tradition to go ziplining. So with the crew of Rich Coast Diving, where I’m doing my internship to become a divemaster, we headed for Diamante, an ecopark with a wide network of ziplines.
Costa Rica is often called “Switzerland of Central America“. The country has a particular track record when it comes to being future-focused. They dissolved the army in 1948. Since many years, they became less dependent from fossil resources for energy.
Costa Rica touches both the Atlantic and the Pacific ocean, and has an extreme wide bio-diversity in between these oceans.
The Pan American highway makes its way trough the country.
Two international airports, with direct flights to the USA, Canada and many other America countries makes travel to Costa Rica easy.
A little update on the current travel. I’m in Costa Rica to become a divemaster.
