Travel Repeat: Costa Rica

Sometimes, no matter how many countries there are in the world left to visit, there is nothing like returning to a destination you love. Maybe it’s because a specific place has meaning, because a local food changed everything. Whatever the reason, traveling to a country for a second time can feel like going home.
