The Macaw Recovery Network (previously The Ara Project) is a non-profit organization with a vision to have thriving parrot populations in healthy, connected forests, across their former ranges. Previously extinct in this area, MRN has brought the iconic Scarlet Macaw back, giving our region an established population of over 50 birds! You can see these reintroduced Macaws fly free and learn about the various efforts this wonderful organization undertakes when you visit Costa Rica.

Justin Welch Photography

Workshops available daily 8am – 11am
Are you frustrated with having a digital camera that you don’t know how to use to achieve the beautiful photographs you want? With a maximum of six participants, these workshops with a Samara-based local photographer are designed to provide you with the knowledge, skills,  and confidence to practice creating those images. Photographers of any skill level can benefit from the workshops, which cover topics for beginners, intermediate and advanced skill levels. The workshops are a fun way to improve your current knowledge and skills. We will cover some theory and then, most importantly, go out together to put that theory into practice.
