Travel to Costa Rica
In the heart of Central America, Costa Rica is a nation of inspiring people who have built the longest standing democracy in Latin America. This small territory that only encompasses 0.03% of the planet’s surface is home to nearly 5% of the Earth’s biodiversity. Costa Ricans pride themselves in their healthy, peaceful and sustainable lifestyle, which they call “Pura Vida.” These words have become a true identifier for the nation’s vision and a welcoming message to all those ready to discover what Costa Rica has to offer.
Positioned within Costa Rica’s fertile northern lowlands, the Arenal Volcano is an unavoidable presence while traveling within this part of the country. It is tall and imposing and has a reputation that precedes itself. Arenal’s perfectly symmetrical shape makes it a sightseer’s dream, while its abundance of outdoor activities makes it an easy place to check things off your “must-do in Costa Rica” list.
Costa rica Whale Tail
Nature works in mysterious ways. And one really interesting oddity of nature is the so called whale tail that juts into the Pacific Ocean on Costa Rica’s southern Pacific coast. This giant rock and sand formation not only has the distinct shape of a whale’s tail, but is located in the exact spot where hundreds of humpback whales congregate each year. In this post, we’ll let you know how to see this famed whale beacon for yourself.

SAY ABOUT US
What a great trip. Thank you to Israel Mesen for all your knowledge and bringing us to such beautiful wildlife filled places!
When our tour guide challenged me to a fun "photo contest" since I had won the company photo contest back in 2019 with my photo of a red-eyed treefrog, I didn't know what photo I would choose. I scrolled through the many photos I had taken, trying to find what I felt was my best shot. Finally, I saw this one and was instantly sold. This takes the cake as one of my favorite shots from the trip, and definitely one of my favorites of all time.Oh! I also won a beer with it. Parachuting Red Eyed Leaf Frog (Agalychnis saltator).
I have long admired and appreciated Israel Mesen for his genuine commitment to improving communities in Costa Rica. I am proud to consider him an amigo and to be a partner with him in the Camaquiri Conservation Initiative.
