Recently, I was able to fulfill a longtime calling to travel to Costa Rica on a photography trip. The plan came together quickly after I saw a special on airfare direct from Houston to San Jose, Costa Rica. I booked the flight before I even knew where I was staying, what I would be photographing or anything else that might resemble a plan. While this was rather spontaneous and uncharacteristic of me, it also led to one of the greatest photography trips that I have taken. I want to share my experience along with recommendations so that you too can go and enjoy Costa Rica. While I am happy with the pictures that I brought home, they pale in comparison to actually going to Costa Rica and sharing in the experience. I hope to return next year with my family so that everyone can enjoy.
