Costa Rican Paradise – Eye of the Beholder

JANUARY 15 – 22ND, 2011


Join us for an exciting journey photographing the vivid colors of Central America. Our tour takes us to our home base at AmaTierra, an ecotourism lodge located right in the heart of some of Costa Rica’s most pristine areas.

We will visit and photograph Carara National Park, a haven for wildlife including sloths, monkeys, and the beautiful scarlet macaw. Another day we explore Turu Ba Ri Tropical Park complete with a butterfly garden and canopy tour. Other highlights include a trip to Playa Esterillos and the seaside town of Jaco. A new excursion has been added to Zoo Ave, a sanctuary for exotic birds.
