About this book

Adrian Hepworth's Costa Rica: A Journey Through Nature takes readers on a spectacular photographic journey through one of the most biologically diverse countries on the planet. Above a trail, a puma stands majestically on a tree limb surveying the forest below; an iridescent blue butterfly flutters through the air; the jewel-like feathers of a resplendent quetzal sparkle in a cloud forest; a female sea snake and her newly born offspring struggle across a beach under a relentless sun; and early morning light reveals a turtle spraying clouds of sand over its nest.

The second edition of Costa Rica: A Journey Through Nature includes over 100 new photographs, new maps, a new introduction, and updated text throughout. Bringing together dramatic images and informative descriptions, Costa Rica: A Journey Through Nature provides a remarkable account of wild animals in Costa Rica, their behavior, and the sublime landscapes that they inhabit.
