Imagine...You are already on your Costa Rica vacation. You awake to the primitive sound of a Howler Monkey making claim to his territory. By the time you stretch and step out for a look, you can hear the playful chatter of what sounds like red lored parrots in the distance. The noise is rendered inaudible as a small wave gently crashes into the white sand of the palm studded beach. As you sip the rich Costa Rica coffee on your ocean view balcony, it occurs to you that just yesterday morning you were equally mesmerized by the sight of smoke plumes rolling out of the imposing Arenal Volcano. The Costa Rica holiday of a lifetime!
