Costa Rica Rain Forest

Imagine a place where it rains every day. Tall trees loom above you. Branches form a green ceiling high in the sky. Plants, vines, and brightly colored flowers fill every inch of space. You are in a Costa Rican tropical rain forest. Rain forests fringe the low-lying areas of the Caribbean and Pacific coasts. Costa Rica lies close to the equator, which means that temperatures stay warm around 80 degrees all year. All that warm weather and lots of rain make the forest a perfect place for tons of plants to grow.

Many animals call the rain forest home. In fact, about 4 percent of all the world's creatures live in this tiny country! Costa Rica's location makes its animal population unique. Some creatures found in North America and others from South America live side by side in Costa Rica.

Rainforest plants include the dazzling orchid Costa Rica's national flower. Its bright colors help birds find it in dim light forest. The pigeon sized quetzal is Toucans, parrots, and a rare bird considered to be one of the most called the quetzal all live in the rain beautiful birds in the world.
