Costa Rica is my favorite place in the world outside of the US.
Here are a few pictures showing Costa Rica, it's moods, its weather, its people, and its raw beauty.
A beautiful rainbow at a remote quinta, near the Poas Volcano. Farmhouse and pasture are so peaceful.
|Esferas de piedra! Take a look at THESE balls! No vandalism problems here.|
|Flowers. Costa Rica is tropical, and therefore has a stunning collection of flora. For all I know... these could be weeds. Enjoy!|
|My favorite... almost surreal in its beauty|
|On the road out of San Ramon, there is a wild river with white water rapids running 8 feet. When you explore, you find this statue, all alone in a glade near the river.|
|Another flower? This night shot of a flower near the Pacific Ocean is another of my favorites!|
|I finally DID make it to Arenal, an active volcano NW of San Jose. It was not erupting too actively when I got there. At night, the lava flows showed far better|
|A lovely valley near the Monteverde Cloud Forest.|
|Driving around Lake Arenal in Guanacaste, I was told by my companion to watch for these critters.|
|Costa Rica is loaded with plantations. Many are huge with long approach roads... Here is someone's driveway!|
