Costa Rica: A Spectrum of Colours

Costa Rica has, in recent decades, emerged with one of the best tourism infrastructures in the world and a focus on ecological tourism that is central to the award-winning sustainable tourism that is ubiquitous throughout the jungles of this wildlife hotspot.

Brimming with verdant National Parks and bursting with bio-diversity, it's no wonder nature and wildlife enthusiasts flock to Costa Rica in their thousands to catch a fleeting glimpse of a rare bird or endangered jaguar.

These dense cloud forests are awash with spectacular colours and an unrivaled atmosphere, creating the perfect setting for wildlife photographers. Because of this, this display is an attempt to highlight the vast spectrum on offer and the overwhelming beauty of Costa Rican bio-diversity.
