The most heartwarming Costa Rican boost ever

Remember Florence and Eloise, the London sisters who created a rainforest in their basement when their trip to Costa Rica had to be called off during the COVID-19 crisis?

  1. Wow, beautiful and inspiring video! I hope Florence and Eloise and all the other travelers that had to cancel their trips to come to Costa Rica, are able to travel again soon and enjoy these beauties with their own eyes!
