    Here are some highlights of my Costa Rica trip. First, we went to the Arenal volcano. It's in a rainforest, and when we got there, it was solidly in the clouds. Nevertheless, there were things to do and see. First, on a trip down a river near La Fortuna, we saw the following. We saw a good sized crocodile on the banks as we floated down, but my pics didn't really come out. But, I was able to zoom in on this howler monkey:


    On this float, we stopped on a local farm, and saw, among other things, this Iguana on an old shed:


    Further down, we found some poison dart frogs, which I had to show for the dart frog fans here, although the pic is a bit blurry:


    And then, finally, the clouds parted, and the volcano came out. At a particularly opportune time, it went BOOOOOMMMM!!!!!:


    Then, after a night of lava flows and booming eruptions, none of which I successfully photographed, we went off to the beach in Tamarindo, for good waves, margaritas and sunsets:


    This is just a short sampling. You can't turn around without finding something to take a picture of in Costa Rica. I highly recomend travel there.

    Oh wow. Someone else is living all my dreams! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] I've been obsessed with visiting Costa Rica since my rainforest ecology class.

    More! Must have more pics.

    Where are all the selva plant pics?

    Incidentally, i've had tamarindo juice (yum), but didn't realize there was a city of that name.

    How did I miss this thread?!

    Those are awsome photos Capslock. You must have had a blast. Dart frogs are so cute. And a volcano erupting....wow!

    Glad to have you back but I bet you wish you were still sipping margueritas on the beach. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Thanks for sharing those.
