Guanacaste, Costa Rica

Guanacaste, Costa Rica

December 26, 2017

Based in Philadelphia but always exploring, creative duo Sarah Kunst and Adam Cantiello recently photographed the northwestern province of Guanacaste in Costa Rica — well known for its beaches and biodiverse parkland. Enjoy their words and pleasantly tropical images…

Escaping the harsh east coast winter, we packed our bags and headed to Costa Rica. Flying into Liberia, we hopped in our SUV and headed west down several windy dirt roads towards the coast. For eight days we explored the Guanacaste province’s beautiful landscapes, hidden beaches, lush jungles, and river wildlife near Palo Verde National Park.
