Costa Rica is well known for its wildlife and its biological diversity. National Geographic has highlighted that fact many times, even by qualifying our Corcovado National Park as one of the best National Parks in the world. Now, NatGeo Wild created another great audiovisual material called “Untamed Costa Rica”. Released on November 30, there are six chapters, telling the stories of various species that live in our forests. Filipe DeAndrade was the film maker in charge of this natural masterpiece: he traveled through Costa Rica documenting a series of examples of how our wildlife deserves to be the center of the attention for all these travelers that visit Costa Rica.
You can watch the whole series in the link below!
The video is a must-see! In it you will witness the ‘arribadas’, the mass nesting of the Kemp’s ridleys sea turtles in Guanacaste, how the jaguars influences their nesting, and the high risk that the newborn turtles run on their way to the sea. But also the struggle for the survival of hummingbirds or white-faced monkeys when competing for the food, not only for themselves but also for their little ones. Then you can watch the intimate mating ritual of tree frogs and poison dart frogs; or finally how the sharks hunt in the darkness of the reefs in Costa Rica’s natural gem, the Coco’s Island.
Visit Costa Rica! Come for the wildlife…but also for the beaches, the people, the fun!
