Pura Vida! Costa Rica is an awesome place for photographers with many and interesting sights including jungles, waterfalls, and wildlife. While the photographic opportunities are fantastic, it may sometimes be a little difficult to reach certain spots or get permission to be in these places, which is why Costa Rica photography tours are such a good idea.
Pura Vida Costa Rica
Pura Vida means “pure life” and a Costa Rica photography trip will live up to that phrase in a large way. Costa Rica photography is exciting, refreshing, and a great experience for any level of photographer.
ColorTexturePhotoTours is my choice for experiencing everything photographic that can be described as Pura Vida Costa Rica. For early 2021, they have several Costa Rica photography tours scheduled that offer a great experience.
Costa Rica Photography Tours
Some of the reasons for using a guided Costa Rica photography tour company for your trip is that the tour companies have experience in the area and are often given access to spots that aren’t available to the general public.
Some other reasons, especially in regards to ColorTexturePhotoTours, are personalised photography assistance, Lightroom training, comfortable hotels with great restaurants, and private transportation, to name but a few.
ColorTexturePhotoTours has been a favorite photographic tour company for me ever since I first discovered them. For 2021, they currently have 8 Costa Rica photography trips planned that you join. They also have done several Oregon tours with an emphasis on gorgeous waterfalls.
Bookmark their website, you’ll want to see what’s coming up and some examples of the gorgeous scenery you will witness on their guided tours.
Your Costa Rica Photography Trip
So, what are you going to see on your Pura Vida Costa Rica photography trip? Well, you are going to see so much in a few days that you will be busy sharing your images for a long time. Here are some of the places and sights you will visit.
Catarata Llanos de Cortez
One of the premier waterfalls in Costa Rica is Catarata Llanos de Cortez. Sixty feet tall and almost that wide, Catarata Llanos de Cortez looks amazing and sounds wonderful. It cascades into a very shallow pool and is surrounded by lush tropical growth.
There are actually two parts to the waterfall, accessible by short hikes from the road you’ll drive on to get into the area. Besides the photography, you might also enjoy playing in the pools or under part of the falls.
At times, you’ll also be treated to colorful birds that can be their own photographic subjects or included in the waterfall images. Listen to the hints and clues from the photo guides for capturing the best views.
Rincón de la Vieja Volcano National Park
Volcanoes! A fun trip by itself, this area has multiple beautiful waterfalls and their accompanying pools including Oropendola Waterfall which plunges 80 feet into the lush canyon carved out by Rio Blanco. You’ll also see Las Chorreras, a unique double waterfall with its own gorgeous scenery surrounding the falls.
La Fortuna and Lake Arenal
Costa Rica photography tours don’t feel complete if you miss La Fortuna, one of the most famous waterfalls in Costa Rica. It’s a tall, gorgeous waterfall and Lake Arenal has lots of variety in views and wildlife to photograph.
A huge factor in choosing a leading Costa Rica photography tour provider like ColorTexturePhotoTours is the all-inclusive nature of these trips. All-inclusive means that all you need to be concerned with is your gear and your clothing, and even with those, tour companies will offer guidance and suggestions.
With ColorTexturePhotoTours, your lodging, meals, and the photography treks are part of one package. This really provides Pura Vida Costa Rica for you since you can concentrate on the experience, having details planned out by experts.
Some of the best parts on a Costa Rica photography tour will last far beyond the trip itself. You’ll have an amazing photographer to guide you for sure, and you will also have wonderful memories and maybe even some new friends.
The next tour is scheduled for January of 2021 with several others after that into early Spring. Experience Pura Vida Costa Rica for yourself with ColorTexturePhotoTours.
