About this book

A magnificent illustrated testimony to Costa Rica's fragile beauty.

This exquisite book of photographs, brilliant in colour and enchanting in subject, takes readers on a personal journey through the jeweled treasure that is Costa Rica. Images of spacious beaches, muddy river banks, crystal clear waterfalls, and lush jungles adorned with tropical blooms and prehistoric plants will stay in the reader's mind for a long time to come.

Costa Rica is organized by region – the Central Divide, Guanacaste, the Central Pacific, the Osa Peninsula, the North Caribbean, the South Caribbean – and closes with a discussion on conservation and responsible tourism. Like an informed tour guide, the extended captions provide interesting facts and valuable context, much of it from the perspective of the author/photographer.

Costa Rica: a journey through nature
by Keith Betton in UK
This book has been published in Canada. It takes a different approach to Adrian Hepworth's similar title Wild Costa Rica: The Wildlife and Landscapes of Costa Rica. Rather than let the text lead you through the book, the photographs have extended captions as each region is explored – the Central Divide, Guanacaste, the Central Pacific, Osa Peninsula, North Caribbean and South Caribbean. There are more photographs than in Wild Costa Rica, and they have been picked for their imagery rather than necessarily to illustrate a specific point. The colour printing is also more intense being on full gloss paper and the photos often fill an entire page.
