Costa Rica is bordered by Nicaragua to the north and Panama to the south. Many people who choose to visit this tropical paradise do so by crossing the Panamanian border into Sixaola after they visit Bocas del Toro, an island community just off Panama's Caribbean Coast. This region can be a great side-trip for tourists planning to continue to Costa Rica afterward. I hopped out to Bocas del Toro to see what kinds of exciting things there are to do there - it took me a while, but it sure was worth it!
Costa Rica is famed for its stunning natural beauty and exotic wildlife - and it's no surprise, as, in addition to the monkeys, tropical birds - and tree frogs - that inhabit this beautiful country, Costa Rica is also home to several species of crocodile. These gigantic reptiles are very dangerous, and have been around for almost 65 million years! A great way to learn about these fascinating and dangerous creatures is to take a crocodile tour in Tarcoles. Come with me to find out more!
Sometimes, when I'm hopping through the rainforest, I see tourists whiz past me on mountain bikes. It sure does look like a lot of fun, but I don't think they make bikes in my size! Follow me to learn more about this exciting sport!
