Costa Rica is famous for beaches, rainforests, and those adorable little smiling sloths. But have you thought about Costa Rica’s waterfalls? As a tropical country, Costa Rica sees a lot of rain–about 100 inches per year. In the mountainous regions (hint: where the rivers start) that can jump to 25 feet a year in some places! All that water makes for plenty of crystal clear rivers and some pretty impressive waterfalls.
A guest post by Daniel of Destinationless Travel – Kakadu isn’t just about breathtaking landscapes; it’s also a great way to learn about Australia’s first settlers and traditional landowners. The Indigenous people of Australia have a history on the continent of around 40,000 years.
