- Title: Jesus Christ Lizard
- Country: Costa Rica
- Nearest Area: Guanacaste Province
- Nearest Town: Don't know
- Brief Directions: Anyone is San José, the capital of Costa Rica, will be able to tell a tourist how to get to Caño Negro which is close to the Rio San Juan between Costa Rica and Nicaragua.
- Notes: It is difficult for me to remember how to get to a particular place in Costa Rica because I don't drive there. Usually my niece takes me around to photograph the beauty of the country side which is very green and hot. It is, after all, a tropical country.
In Costa Rica this type of reptile is called a "Jesus Christ" lizard because it walks on water very fast. The name is not given to be disrespectful to the figure of Christ. I hope no one is offended by the title.
- Best Season: Winter
