If you like your wildlife, then Costa Rica and Nicaragua can supply you with plenty of photographic models, from the outrageously colourful to the downright weird. You’ll see manatees and macaws, spider monkeys and capuchins, in a variety of locations from El Castillo to Bajos del Toro.
You can bathe in thermal springs and visit a volcano in Arenal, watch birds on Lake Nicaragua, browse through time in the ancient city of Granada, or simply laze to your heart’s content on the fine white sand of a glorious beach in San Juan del Sur.
