Costa Rica is considered to possess the highest density of biodiversity of any country worldwide. While encompassing just one third of a percent of Earth’s landmass, approximately the size of West Virginia, Costa Rica contains four percent of species estimated to exist on the planet. Hundreds of these species are endemic to Costa Rica, meaning they exist nowhere else on earth. These endemic species include frogs, snakes, lizards, finches, hummingbirds, gophers, mice, cichlids, and gobies among many more. Go explore this beautiful country, and engulf yourself in all the amazing nature it has to offer.
Immerse yourself in an adventure deep into the rainforest of Costa Rica. Rushing waterfalls, crystal blue warm water rivers, and freshly home-grown Costa Rica cuisine greets your arrival on this adventure.
This video is the result of a spontaneous trip to Costa Rica. The trip started on the dry climate beaches of the Nicoya Peninsula, where peaceful waves and warm sun soothed lazy iguanas, turtles, and travelers like me in search of the perfect beach. After getting much needed sunshine and rest, we headed up to the rain forests of Monteverde, where sweeping views of massive tree canopies showed us just how ecologically diverse Costa Rica is. Driving around and watching the clouds rotate the wind turbines, passing by ranchers on their horses, picking up fruits at small stands along the way, I knew this was a very special place. And to know that all I saw that one week was just a small hint of what Costa Rica has to offer, I promised myself I'll get back there very soon.

This film relates a story each can live one day : discover a place by accident and totally fall in love with it, feeling how subjectively unique it is. Finally wondering if “Everything happens for a Reason”. And especially, in the stunning village of Playa Junquillal, Costa Rica.
INFINITE THANKS to those without whom this film would not exist :
