A Costa Rican adventure

Costa Rica

I’m pretty excited about my next assignment: a 10-day trip to Costa Rica with Contiki Cares!

I’m joining 11 other people from around the world – the three winners of the recent #contikistorytellers competition, as well as photographers, filmmakers, bloggers and Celine Cousteau, a celebrated documentary filmmaker.

The itinerary, based on a Contiki’s Costa Rica unplugged trip sounds epic – we’re going to be ziplining through the treetops, going white water rafting, canyoneering through a rainforest canyon, tasting our way through chocolate tours, visiting coffee plantations and learning how to make Costa Rican coffee, hiking in cloud forests, surfing on the Caribbean coast, diving with dolphins and working with the Sea Turtle Conservancy in Tortuguero National Park, tracking turtles and tagging nests.

The trip starts on Saturday 29 March 2014: follow our adventure around Costa Rica with the hashtag #contikistorytellers on Twitter and Instagram.
