I'll be traveling all week exploring the world of Costa Rican eco-tourism. The Costa Rica Tourism Board is hosting a group of bloggers, journalists, and other media types on an eight-day tour of their tropical nation, and I was lucky enough to get a spot.

I'll be sharing my adventures over the next week with two good friends who should be strangers to no one who follows green blogs — Brian Clark Howard of The Daily Green and Michael d'Estries of Ecorazzi and MNN.

We'll be moving almost constantly throughout the week and will get a good chance to see how Costa Rica — widely recognized as one of the world's most environmentally friendly nations — does green travel.

I have to admit to being really excited about this trip. I'll be writing all week, so it's not entirely a full disconnection, but it's close enough for me.

Stay tuned for pictures, videos and written dispatches from my travels.
