1: Costa Rica | April 2012 | We visited Costa Rica's Central Pacific Coast and stayed high in the mountains above a town called Parrita. All the photographs here were shot in and around that area including the backyard of the place we stayed. Some are in the Mangrove swamps near Quepos and others are from Manuel Antonio National Park.
