Costa Rica has extensive natural cloud and rain forests in its protected national parks. Towering trees merge into a vast canopy with a multiplicity of tree, epiphytes and creeper species growing through one another in a fantastically complex ecosystem. Bell birds and howler monkeys can be heard (and sometimes seen) from suspension walkways that thread through some of Costa Rica's major parks.

For the adventurous, there are numerous canopy tours in Costa Rica's forests - Tarzan style rides, swinging along cables stretched between platforms high in the forest canopy.
