About this book

Nature's Paradise celebrates the boundless natural wonders of Costa Rica, spanning many different parts of the country in different seasons. This photo essay showcases the photographers favorite examples of ora, fauna, and special locations, and strives to highlight the variety of scenic viewing opportunities available to travelers. The majority of the photographs were taken in wild, natural settings; only select, rare subjects, such as the big cats, were photographed in captivity. Included are a few tips on photography, as well as information on where the subjects are located.
