Adolfo's Garden Laguna del Lagarto, Santa Rita, Costa Rica Book now
It has often been reported that remote, undisturbed, dense forests are not always the best places to photograph birds. Agricultural areas, gardens with fruits, edge-habitats often attract many more species, and the situation is not different in Costa Rica either.
