There are seemingly infinite adjectives that can be used to describe Costa Rica, but to keep it simple, Costa Rica is often described as one of the most beautiful places in the world. These photographs are captured proof of this. Pristine beaches on both coasts hug a densely verdant middle that is dotted with volcanoes, waterfalls, cloud forests, and rainforests. Costa Rica is rich with awe-inspiring nature and culture. Sometimes all it takes is a photograph to inspire an adventure.
