Rainforest Publications' Fold-Out Pocket Field Guides are designed to slip into your pocket so that you can easily access our field guides and identify the flora and fauna you see while on your walks, hikes, and excursions through Costa Rica.

The illustrations on this fold-out field guide from Rainforest Publications were created by three of our wonderful artists.

Uko Gorter illustrated the marine mammals.

The reef fish and sport fish illustrations are by Alina Suárez.

Mark Wainwright illustrated the sea turtles.
