"The hanging bridges in Monteverde were very interesting. We hiked through the cloud forest before going zip lining. We went in January and the sun was out in force, which I think burned off a lot of the mist and clouds that normaly would be here. It was great none the less."
"On our last trip to Costa Rica in June of 2009, we had rain showers each day near sunset. One evening however, it did clear enough to produce a beautiful sunset with an amazing yellow-gold hue."

"A close up of a caiman (a smaller relative of a crocodile) very close to our canoe in Tortuguero, Costa Rica."
"A mangrove—we saw lots of wildlife including a rare silky anteater."
"Monteverde National Park was great and after our hike we stopped by the Hummingbird Cafe. You can view them for free and there were a ton of them. They would fly so close you could hear and feel the breeze from their wings. If it was not for digital I would have given up after I shot the first 50 pictures."

"Pictures on the top of Irazu Volcano were difficult to capture due to the cloud cover. The clouds would rush in to cover the view, but they would retreat just as quickly. The Irazu Volcano is the highest active volcano in Costa Rica at 11,260 feet (3,432 meters)."
"A practically empty beach near Playa Samara."
"A butterfly near Arenal Volcano."
