“About half of the plants and animals found on the Earth live in tropical rainforests.”
Rainforests are some of the most diverse ecosystems on the planet. I was fortunate enough to travel to Costa Rica where I visited the Cabo Blanco rainforest, located on the extreme southern tip of the Nicoya Peninsula. The reserve was created in 1963 and was part of the first major conservation project in the country. It’s great to see a small country like Costa Rica recognizes these benefits of the rainforest and fight to protect these increasingly threatened ecosystems. Definitely worth taking the two hour hike through the jungle and down onto the secluded beach.
The following images are a collection of photographs that I captured while hiking through the jungle.
