Costa Rica
This frilly hibiscus was growing near a home in Tortugero Village. The tiny island has no road, but has an airport to bring in guests for the fishing lodges nearby. In April Giant Leatherback turtles arrive to lay their eggs in the sand; Hawksbills in July. National Park rangers take tourists on night walks if you are lucky enough to come during nesting season. No cameras or flashlights are allowed.
