This expedition to the Pacific versant of Costa Rica is intended to find and photograph some of the most marvelous and spectacular species of amphibians and reptiles in Central America. Costa Rica is known by its huge biodiversity in such small area, with more than 440 species of reptiles and amphibians in 50.000 km2. In this expedition we can observe around 100 species in 10 days (of course this is not a promise, as we deal with nature!), and will visit six different locations, one of Caribbean influence, two in the dry (xeric) area, and 3 along the southern pacific (rainforest).
Panama and Costa Rica
In the northern Pacific (dry forest area), as much as we will visit in the early wet season, we can see many species that are hidden during the rest of the year, breeding, calling, and showing their best colors
