Why I love Costa Rica

7. Waiters and shopgirls call you mi amor (my love) and mi reina (my queen).

6. Active volcanos never let you forget that the earth is a work in progress.

5. The coffee!

4. You don’t have to go looking for amazing birds—they’re right outside your window.

3. You can surf (and snorkel, kayak, raft, and swim) without a wetsuit.

2. The force-of-nature afternoon downpours during the rainy season, which remind you that we must adapt to nature, not the other way around.

1. You’ll never catch this country declaring war (Costa Rica abolished its army in 1949).
