Costa Rica’s Caribbean Coast is a short distance from the more popular Pacific side, but the ambience here is a world apart. A thick jungle canopy rolls down from the highlands, imposing itself on the ocean’s edge. Tropical heat and a distinct Afro-Caribbean culture influence all aspects of life, nature, customs, cuisine and attitude. Perspectives in this show take us from the open-cockpit of the Edge-X trike, skimming the top of the lush cloud forest to the colorful villages of Yorkin, Cahuita and Puerto Viejo, where local inhabitants share their unique lifestyles, music and folklore. From the air to the ground, this is an intimate portrait of a powerful place and its vibrant people.
