Undiscovered Vistas

The world is packed with landscapes that serve up scenery of breathtaking sumptuousness, while puzzling us with its paradoxes. Visit Yucatan rain forests with very little rain, or a Sierra Gorda mountain range with both arid deserts and lush cloud forests. Landscapes aside, the residents of these lands bring their own intrigue: from the scientific anomaly known as the axolotl, to the haunting cry of the howler monkey, to the hammerhead sharks of Costa Rica who have turned the coastal mangroves into their own personal nursery.
