乖小咪The Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve in Santa Elena, Costa Rica is a very beautiful tropical rainforest park. The misty scenery here is very charming all year round. With beautiful lakes, towering volcanoes, and magnificent valleys, it is definitely a paradise for hikers.

南美当地向导YolandaReceiving tourists to Arenal Volcano Park, the bubble volcanic hot springs are simply too enjoyable. Brotherland is really a country braving fairy tales! There are more than 270 volcanoes. The most famous is Arenal Volcano, located near La Fortuna, a well-known tourist resort in northern Costa Rica. It had a devastating eruption in 1968 and entered a long-term dormant state after 2010. It is now a national park for tourists to visit. On the way to the volcano, you can see many small ants moving in groups and carrying mini leaves. The view from the observation deck is very good. There is always a cloud of mist around the crater, surrounded by cloud forests. There is a restaurant next to it, where you can have a drink overlooking the volcano. The scenery here is too suitable for wide-angle, enjoy pure life pura vida! ❤️For more local fun in Costa Rica, please consult me!

La Fortuna Waterfall

pxy0705La Fortuna Waterfall in Costa Rica is one of the most famous natural sights here. Although the strange rocks of the waterfall are not very large, the drop is relatively high. There is a deep pool below which attracts many tourists to swim here. The waves of the water column machine are very large and powerful.

呆火The first and most important thing-don't underestimate this hike. It's just so much better for hiking. The last place you have to go is in a steep gradient and 1.5 kilometers to climb/root the rock and you need to use the corresponding hands and feet. It's really untouchable, but because the path people walk on it is obvious to all. It is not paved or marked but it is easy to follow. There is a big lake on the top floor, but this also tells you. It's really not too much. We did not go swimming because of crazy insects and bugs that drove us. On the way back, we focused on thinking more about getting some great environment and the view of Arenal Volcano. In short we are always about 5 hours. You want to do this early, and you must avoid this place at night for bed bugs, snakes, etc. Highly recommend this hike for the sake of trekking, not too many at the top of the lake. We will definitely feel our muscles in the next two days, but it is worth it. :)

乖小咪Puntarenas is a famous tropical rain forest, and there are basically no roads in some places. The best way to visit here is to participate in the zipline. A zipline, crossing the forest, can experience such thrills and see the beauty of the entire tropical rainforest, which is really very special.

ZOE爷In the depths of the jungle, I found a little light, followed the path, and unexpectedly found the door to the fairyland world. In a serene and quiet little wood house, looking at the lush woods and the sky between the branches through the window, thoughts are flying. Beautiful costa rica
