“There’s no better way to change your perception of the world — and maybe yourself — than travel.” writes Dan Saltzstein. “You’ll experience different cultures, meet new friends and make lifelong memories. But traveling in your 20s poses challenges (…),” continues the article that leaves out the obvious classic cities of New York, Paris, London.

Why Costa Rica? “Rain forests teeming with wildlife, two coasts peppered with reasonably priced eco-resorts and creative ways to get around (horseback riding and rafting, for example). Flights from the United States tend to be reasonable,” stresses Saltzstein.

In the list other destinations such as Prague (Czech Republic), Cuba, Amsterdam, Patagonia (Argentina), New Orleans, Berlin, Montreal, Vietnam, Budapest, Barcelona, Morocco appear, among others.

“Think of this selection of 20 places as a list to fulfill as a starter kit to travel the world,” says the newspaper.

In recent years, prestigious newspapers in Europe and America have made Costa Rica one of the most booming tourist destinations in the world.
