24 Photos That Prove Why You Should Visit Costa Rica

It’s one of the world’s most beautiful countries—a place I’ve traveled to and loved. Not just for its incredible, out-of-this-world natural scenery, but for the friendliness of the people, the surprising foods, and the rise of its LGBTQ-friendless and inclusivity.

There’s a reason so many Americans choose to visit Costa Rica. Below, some of my favorite moments and travel photos from Costa Rica from my visits.
