Quin Schrock

Quin Schrock is an adventure and lifestyle photographer based out of Southern California and Oahu. Always one to forge his own path, Quin’s distinct photographic style captures the intrepid human spirit engaging with diverse, remote, and off the beaten path landscapes.


Rincón de la Vieja: An active volcano in northwestern Costa Rica, the area surrounding Rincón de la Vieja is a haven for natural hot springs, thermal mud pools, waterfalls, and endless bodies of blue water for swimming. Wander countless trails, and if you’re lucky, capture glimpses of monkeys, jaguars and more.

Arenal Volcano area and La Fortuna Waterfall: No matter your route, the drive into Arenal is stunning. Above Lake Arenal, the mighty volcano stands tall surrounded by rolling hills and lush forests. Arenal and La Fortuna is the perfect destination to rappel waterfalls, hike trails, and get willingly lost.

Tenorio Volcano and Rio Celeste: The volcano is located between Monteverde and Rincón de la Vieja National Park, and although dormant, you can still see activity stir from hiking trails. “Rio Celeste” means light blue in Spanish, and you’ll see why the beautifully blue river was given its name.

Bienvenidos and welcome to Costa Rica! TrovaTrip will meet you at the airport before we transfer to Rincón de la Vieja. After you get settled, you’ll join the rest of the crew for a welcome dinner and we’ll raise a toast to our next 5 days of adventure and photography!

No more than 20 travelers on each trip. In order to create a personalized experience, we feel it is important to keep group sizes smaller. Sometimes, less is more!
