Issuu Online E-Mag Highlights

Happy New Year to Howler readers around the world! Leading the way into 2022, our road trip series continues with January’s cover story taking you for a ride on the wild side. We hope it motivates you to explore Costa Rica’s Osa Peninsula before the face of this exotic wonderland —  home to one of the last coastal tropical rainforests on earth — is transformed forever. 

Another travel tale chronicles one adventurer’s roundabout border crossing experience from Panama to Costa Rica. This month’s artist’s spotlight is on Susan Adams, whose paintings capture the essence of Costa Rica’s sea, sky and soul from her unique storytelling perspective. The promise of regenerative agriculture is discussed in our eco-feature about a local food production and marketing success story in Tempate, Guanacaste. We also share highlights of a recent conversation with Christian Marin-Müller, a scientist and leading media spokesperson striving to ensure Costa Ricans are fully and accurately informed about current pandemic news.

This month’s artist’s spotlight is on Susan Adams, whose paintings capture the essence of Costa Rica’s sea, sky and soul from her unique storytelling perspective. That makes it our pleasure to feature one of Howler’s most prolific longstanding contributors, Charlene Golojuch of Hidden Garden Art Gallery in Guanacaste. 


“Working with so many talented artists has been a fantastic opportunity and brought much joy to my life,” Charlene told us. “Meeting each one of them and getting to know their stories and background enables us to share their visions with not just Costa Rica, but with the world!” 

Another highlight of Charlens’s life here and work at the gallery is the extraordinary chance to meet both international travelers and local residents. ”Learning about them, hearing their stories … it’s all a marvelous experience.”
