    I went to Costa Rica in May of 2014 to go explore this lush tropical nation in Central America.  San Jose is the capital city of Costa Rica, and my journey began there.  It was about a 5 hour and 40 minute flight from LAX to SJO (San Jose).  The airport is actually located north of San Jose in a town called Alajuela.  From there, we toured the Arenal Volcano and Tabacon Hot Springs as well as the rain forests of Heredia.  We saw the cloud forests also on the way to Arenal.  Furthermore, we went to Guanacaste which is on the Pacific Coast.  We stayed at an all inclusive resort on Papagayo Gulf.
