The Switzerland of Central America

By Linda Tancs

For decades Costa Rica has been referred to as the Switzerland of Central America, owing to peace, prosperity and stability.  But let’s not forget the other Swiss-like attributes, like gorgeous mountains offering sweeping panoramic views and hiking opportunities galore.  And, like Switzerland, thrill seekers will love rafting.  Costa Rica offers some of the best whitewater rafting in the world thanks to its mountainous terrain and rain produced by the rainforests.   It’s available year-round, but white-knuckle enthusiasts should wait until May through October to get wet and wild.
