Vida”, pure life is the Costa Rican image. Yet, rural communities
along the south Pacific coast are struggling with rapid economic

hundreds of acres of rain forest. Development pressures are threatening
traditional land use and the natural environment. Students at the
Bahia and San Josecito elementary schools participated in a photo
story workshop focusing on the natural beauty of their community.
