Costa Rica tropical rainforests
Costa Rica`s rainforests are among the ones with the world`s most amazing biodiversity. There are two large tropical lowland rainforests in Costa Rica, the uninterrupted tropical forests of Osa Peninsula and Corcovado National Park in the South Pacific and the lowland tropical rainforests of Tortuguero National Park. The area extends beyond the national park limits, and both ecosystems are currently being connected with other forests, to create natural corridors for the local species of flora and fauna. Inhabited by Tapirs, Jaguars, Puma, and an endless list of species of reptiles, amphibians, birds, mammals and insects, these two large protected areas are considered of world importance. Other tropical rainforests are found in the Talamanca mountain range, on both the Pacific and the Caribbean slopes, the Arenal Monteverde rainforest, Braulio Carrillo National Park, Alberto Manuel Brenes, the Los Santos reserve, Tenorio and Rincon de la Vieja Volcanoes and other areas in the northern plains. The abundance and diversity of plants, trees and animals inhabiting these forests is simple amazing and has not yet been totally counted and investigated.
