Wishlisted by Tricia Importante
In 2008, San Lucas Island was declared a national wildlife preserve, but prior to that – it was the most feared prison in Costa Rica. 😱 I am attracted on places with eerie pasts and landmarks because the place itself tells a story and me being there is like seeing it through my eyes. The old prison still sits on this island. Now, when walking around this renewed island, it is common to see white-tailed deer, armadillos, boa constrictors, pythons, raccoons and pigs, along with 40 species of birds. There are also five pristine beaches on the island that you can explore. For being such a haunted place in the past, they say this island is full of life and beauty now.
