COSTA RICA'S FOREST CLASSIFICATION
Rainforests are the most common habitat and can be found in the southwest of the country as well as in the Atlantic lowlands. Rainforests can be found in the southwest of the country as well as in the Atlantic lowlands. High annual rainfall produces dense forest with towering trees and looping vines that create a magical environment.
Cloud forests are some of the most beautiful. These cover the higher slopes of volcanoes and mountains all across the country. They are full of bromeliads, mosses and ferns and offer great canopy tours with their mysterious fogs.
Tropical dry forests receive much less rain and therefore are not as diverse as the thriving rainforests. However, they still conjure up an incredible ecosystem that houses a stunning display of flowers and trees.
