Things to Do, Travel Tips — By Sophia LaMonica on December 2, 2011 at 1:42 am

‘Tis the season to be jolly, so why not grab the bull by the horns and consider complementing a Costa Rica vacation with a boatload of color? Paintballing is the latest and perhaps greatest adventure to hit the scene, and it’s a blast, I promise. From the Jurassic-themed field outside of San Jose to lush tropical jungle fields designed to simulate a Viet Nam battle experience on the Caribbean coast, paintball  in Costa Rica brings the naturally rugged terrain and raw beauty of the country into sharp focus from behind the barrel of a paintball marker. Suiting up in survival gear and spraying your friends and family a wicked silly way to celebrate the holidays in style in this peace-loving tropical country. The balls in play are non-toxic and safe for the environment,  perfect, bright spheres filled with thick paint and thinly covered, designed to burst upon impact. Sweat and tears mingle with the adrenaline of the thrill of the chase, combined with the team-building and ropes course discoveries, and you’ll all come away with an unforgettable experience that guaranteed to make a powerful impact, mark my words.
