Traveling on both sides of the Costa Rica, as well as right through the middle, showed me an abundance of different flowers. Since each national park seemed to have a completely new set of flowers I have decided to make a separate for every destination and park. Let’s start with the Caribbean side, where I headed first to Tortuguero.
While waiting for the water taxi to Tortuguero I saw these high blooming bushes. Not really sure if these are flowers, now I rather think (after lots of educational visits in different national parks) that the colorful leaves should attract pollinators and the flowers themselves are super small. At the time I didn’t know that though and therefore I only have a picture of the leaves. Or maybe there isn’t even a flower. Honestly, Costa Rica has so many different species, I didn’t know most of it. So here we go with the first post of flowers. Yours, Polybert
I am very sure that this red flower doesn’t grow on trees, but that’s the way it looked from below.
