Hola! I’m writing this post from Tortuguero, located in the rainforest of beautiful Costa Rica, where I am taking part in an exciting Adventures by Disney trip.
This trip to Costa Rica is a special teen-focused departure that includes photography classes that allow our teenage travelers to document their experiences as they explore this breathtaking region. Throughout the week I’ll be sharing photos captured by these young artists with you. (These photos were taken with new Nikon D3100 cameras provided to the teens by Nikon, the official camera of Adventures by Disney).
Tortuguero is the most important nesting site in the Western Hemisphere for a variety of sea turtle species.
Here the group set out on a boat tour to test their skills at capturing photos of wildlife, including caiman, macaw, iguana and a handful of indigenous bird species.
Laguna Lodge, where we stay during this part of our adventure, is uniquely situated on a very narrow barrier island that separates the Caribbean Sea from the mainland of Costa Rica. Dinner took place alongside the river at Laguna Lodge, and the teens were treated to music from a reggae band and a limbo contest. The evening was capped off with a nighttime tour of the beach in search of nesting sea turtles.
Next on our itinerary is a stop at a working pineapple plantation as we make our way to Arenal volcano. Stay tuned for more photos as we continue our Adventures by Disney trip through Costa Rica!
