Twelve lucky participants will have the opportunity to develop their photo documentary skills while exploring beautiful Costa Rica this September.
The fifteen day trip kicks off with the photographers working with volunteers to help protect endangered sea turtles, followed by exploring the Monteverde Cloud Forest.
The workshop ends at La Fortuna which is situated in the small city of San Carlos. La Fortuna was founded in the mid 1930s by settlers from Ciudad Quesada, Grecia, Alajuela. In 1968, the Arenal Volcano erupted to the west, killing 82 people. The eruption did not touch the village of La Fortuna which subsequently changed the destiny of the whole region.
La Fortuna is now one of the most visited touristic destinations of Costa Rica. It has the airport near the Arenal Volcano. Arenal is often cited by scientists as being one of the world's most active Volcano's. La Fortuna is less than 10 km from the peak of Arenal and less than 20 km from the entrance to Arenal Volcano National Park.
Other than the Volcano, La Fortuna has numerous tourist attractions such as the La Catarata de la Fortuna, a waterfall that falls from a height of 70 meters. As well as several resorts with natural hot springs and day trips which involve horse back riding and whitewater rafting.
