February Highlights

Join us for a walk on the wild side this month, as Howler takes a perspective on Costa Rica’s biodiversity that’s vaster and deeper than anything we’ve featured before — but still only scratches the surface. Knowing how hard it is to cover this topic in a way that’s somewhat comprehensive but also concise, we had fun coming up with February’s cover story collection of flora and fauna facts, figures and photos. There is plenty for readers to explore in the way of wildlife articles, videos, puzzles and tour deals.

However far and wide you’re inspired to travel for unparalleled exposure to nature, this magazine issue highlights a variety of options. Our road trip series concludes with the author’s all-time favorite route — La Fortuna to Monteverde, around Lake Arenal.

In addition, get glimpses at a variety of Latin American locales — all based on recommendations from locals. Our “top 5” sampling of attractions in five unique spots begins in Cartago, Costa Rica. Then on each side of the border, we take you to Lídice, Panama and San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua. Venturing a bit further away, find out what experiences await in two distinctive Colombian centers: Cartagena and Bucaramanga. 

As always, Howler keeps Costa Rica connected with the world on other fronts too, from eco-initiatives and fashion to lifestyle, business, legal and real estate topics.



As a child, Carmen María Montero Blanco dreamed of becoming a National Geographic photographer. Today finds the San Ramón native as happy as we are to share her love of nature with Howler readers on our February magazine cover. This extraordinary close-up image was an easy choice for that purpose, showcasing the photographer’s passion for capturing all the details. 


As a means of expressing part of who she is, Carmen strives behind the lens to help people feel and appreciate the beauty of the world. Many more of her extraordinary wildlife images can be viewed on Instagram.
