During these past 6 months, there has been one thing on my mind constantly, which is going on my first photography trip. I couldn’t begin to tell you how much time I’ve spent researching, planning, mapping, and perfecting my itinerary. I’m so excited to have the opportunity to go to Costa Rica! This is my dream trip, and I hope I come back with a million photographs. Some of the places that I’ll be snapping images at include Arenal National Park, La Fortuna Waterfall, La Paz Waterfall Gardens, The Nature Pavilion, Parque Nacional Volcan Tenorio, Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve, & Manuel Antonio National Park. While visiting these places, some of the wildlife / nature I hope to capture include waterfalls, butterflies, rain forest ants, Capuchin monkeys, volcanoes, the rain forest canopy, petrified lava fields, the rainbow eucalyptus, hanging bridges, bats, a sloth, orchids, the country famous Quetzal, the golden toad, bats, a red eyed green tree frog, hot springs, and many many many more. One day will be spent snorkeling, so I hope I have the opportunity to see some marine life swimming next to the coral gardens. I will be staying at 3 different hotels, so I will be able to see much of the country.
