Inside our Costa Rica event: An evening of Central American inspiration

Author and photographer Alex Robinson joined team Wanderlust and a group of our travel-obsessed readers for a night of Costa Rican inspiration and trip planning. Here's what we got up to...

The only thing we love more than talking about travel is, well, actually travelling. So, you can imagine how much we enjoyed hosting a group of Wanderlust's loyal readers at an event to discuss the ins and outs of exploring the Central American nation of Costa Rica.

Wanderlust's own co-founder and editor-in-chief Lyn Hughes hosted the event, while Latin America expert and author Alex Robinson joined us as our guest speaker. We talked wildlife, coastlines and Costa Rica's secret spots, plus the practical stuff: how to get there, getting around, where to stay and so much more.

Watch what we got up to...
