The flowers of Tortuguero

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.
