Read Chase Guttman's take on Costa Rica for kids.
Here's an excerpt:
At one moment I was suspended hundreds of feet in the air, whooshing through a blur of foliage as I glided 2,000 feet
over the gorgeous green canopy on my zipline cable. Volcanoes on all sides hemmed me in, as I took in this rare aerial
panoramic view. Sooner than I thought possible, I found myself riding a roller coaster of whitewater bouncing from boulder to boulder in my humble little vessel -- a rubber inner tube. It was like hitching a ride inside an aquatic pinball machine. The next thing I knew, I was strolling the simple, funky city streets of coastal Tortuguera, walking by fluorescent-colored buildings and photographing its lively culture.
