COSTA RICA - FEB/MAR 2012

COSTA RICA HAS A JUSTIFIED REPUTATION AS A WILDLIFE HAVEN WITH A LARGE AREAS OF PROTECTED FORESTS, FROM DRY PACIFIC SLOPE FORESTS TO CLOUD FOREST AND WET LOWLAND CARIBBEAN SLOPE FOREST. OTHER GREAT WILDLIFE HABITATS ARE ALSO PACKED INTO THIS SMALL CENTRAL AMERICAN REPUBLIC. CAROLINE AND MYSELF SPENT NEARLY THREE WEEKS HERE WATCHING AND PHOTOGRAPHING A GREAT RANGE OF WILDLIFE, OFTEN VERY TAME, IN THE MOST BEAUTIFUL SURROUNDINGS - IT WAS A SIMPLY STUNNING TRIP.
