Mexico and Costa Rica are two sides of the same Aztec coin. Their unique histories, filled with ancient civilizations and conquests, runs deep, and both have emerged into the modern age as colourful, lively cities where you can just as easily stroll the ruins of Teotihuacan as wander the hidden jungles of Sarapiqui. Embark on a Central American adventure past brooding volcanoes, pounding waterfalls, and ruins stuffed with history. Lend a helping hand at a local farm, taste tequila in Guadalajara, salsa the night away in San Jose, and then unwind on the sizzling white sands of Quepos.
