Wow. Colors and forms there are just spectactular! Nothing like I have ever seen. There are all these places in the world we can go and explore... :-)

I'm chartreuse with envy! I work in a live butterfly exhibit that actually specializes in Costa Rican species, and I so wish that I could see them in their natural habitat. You are a blessed man... thanks for sharing what you saw. :)

What an amazing place this must be. Julie's beautiful pictures and your concise drawings give a great thorough impression of the whole experience. Thanks for sharing!

I've wanted to go to Costa Rica for some time. I can almost smell the damp. Sorry about the SLR. Thanks for sharing the pics.

Awesome David, you deserve it. Looking forward to more of the sketches! ;-) We're setting up a trip down there soon ourselves, I'd love to get some tips from you! We'll be a bit more focused on the surfing down there, but the rain forests too of course. Nice post...

Oh Wow! How absolutely gorgeous. A trip to always remember!

Thanks for the comments! Steve - bump this destination up the list. I met someone in Manzanillo that was raised in Brooklyn on the same avenue and just a few streets down from me. Small world! She had not been back to Brooklyn since graduating high school. Adam - The Carribean coast of CR is for nature lovers and surfers. It's difficult to get to and doesn't have the lavish resorts that the Pacific side has and is relatively unspoiled. Salsa Brava in Puerto Viejo is the surfers preferred place to be. We sat and watched the exchange of surfers all afternoon. When it's time to go, call on me and I'll pass along some tips.

I have very fond memories about my trip to Costa Rica about 16 years ago. I'm so glad to read that paradise is intact and still can be found. Wonderful report, photos and all.
