Tourist season is blooming.

Tour companies pack nature lovers into Costa Rica’s National Parks, visit rain forests, hike into volcanic arenas, provide sights for photographers, bird watchers and naturalists. You can do zip lines, take aerial trams, trek up steep mountainsides, or river run to your heart’s content.

Yet, there is trouble in paradise.

This morning, early, my bed moves unexpectedly. .

Earthquakes also visit Costa Rica throughout the year.

Some call Costa Rica a Garden of Eden.

When my room shakes, I don’t think about Paradise.

I think about finding an exit.
