NOTE: These photos are freeze-frame images from video clips taken with a Canon ZR-65MC digital video camera, which are at a lower resolution than still images, hence the smaller size.
Shade coffee field, about 30 miles southeast of San José. Such mixed vegetation provides a much better habitat for birds and other wildlife, and the coffee beans that are produced are higher quality, as well. Compare this to the typical monoculture Doka coffee plantation.
Deep canyon in the highlands of the Cordillera de Talamanca, about 40 miles southeast of San José.
Sugar cane field in the valley of the Río General, about 60 miles southeast of San José.
Pineapple field in the valley of the Río General, about 60 miles southeast of San José. Dole, perhaps? Pineapples are related to the Bromeliad family of plants. Background smoke is from land clearing; window glare was edited out from this photo.
Banana field, palm tree, in a narrow valley that transverses the Fila Costal (Coastal Ridge), about 85 miles southeast of San José.
Río Grande de Térraba, about 85 miles southeast of San José.
Chacarita, a small town in southern Costa Rica, about 100 miles southeast of San José.
Pineapple plant, Playa de Cacao.
Pedestrian mall in downtown San José.
"Death to corrupt politicians!" Graffitti along a busy street in San José.
