At the Hidden Garden Art Gallery in the Guanacaste region of Costa Rica, resident artist Carlos Hiller's newest exhibit - "Ambientes de la Isla del Coco" - portrays the beautiful locale of Isla del Coco, an uninhabited national park and world heritage site off Costa Rica's Pacific coast in the Puntarenas region.

Viewers are invited to an original and never-before-seen view of the island's biosphere.
"I want everyone to be able to experience the sight of the many animals that populate the area, the nature's sculpted scenic landscapes and of course, the hammerhead sharks," said Hiller.
In addition to his exhibit and the gallery, Hiller has exhibited both nationally and internationally, including Central America, the United States, France and the Middle East.
Hiller's efforts to raise awareness about marine conservation are exemplified in public murals and lectures in schools and groups, as well as in his partnerships with local organizations. A student group at the Hidden Garden Art Gallery — Photo courtesy of Hidden Garden Art Gallery
Throughout several trips to Coco, Hiller worked closely with the rangers of the national park and the experience was instrumental in the founding of the Hidden Garden Art Gallery in 2010, which has since become the largest gallery in Guanacaste.
The Hidden Garden Art Gallery and current exhibit hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. It is located 5 kilometers south of the Liberia Airport in Guanacaste.
