Costa Rica

Costa Rica is home to more than 500,00 species, making it amongst the countries with the highest biodiversity in the world. More than twenty-seven percent of the country’s land has a protected status as national park, wildlife refuge, or forest preserve.  National Geographic called it the most “ biologically intense place on Earth.”  These images were taken in January of 2013 (Hotel Bougainvillea Gardens, Arenal Lodge, Laguna del Lagarto Lodge, and La Paz Waterfall Gardens) and February of 2014 Hotel Bougainvillea Gardens, Laguna del Lagarto Lodge, Selva Verde Lodge, and Bosque de Paz Lodge).
