Costa Rica

Perfect for adventure seekers and laid-back explorers alike

Costa Rica is a wonderland of natural attractions, with volcanoes, beaches, cloud forests, and unique wildlife. This is a country that appeals as much to bird-watchers and luxury travelers as it does to surfers and backpackers. The busy city of San Jose is home to the country's best museums and lovely squares. But the real treasures lie beyond the capital in the forests and small coastal villages. Endless stretches of beaches line the Pacific Coast, with small towns that cater to surfers and sun seekers. Inland, the forest- covered mountains offer their own adventures, from volcanoes and waterfalls to ziplining and extraordinary wildlife viewing. For something completely different, check out the Caribbean coast with its calm waters, abundant wildlife, and unique cultural vibe.

What’s a Rich Text element?

Travel to Cuba is restricted. Learn more

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila! 3

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
