If you're in Costa Rica and checking out the rain forests, definitely take a canopy tour. Basically, you get to ride a ski-lift type contraption up through the canopy of the rain forest, gliding along a cable one-hundred feet off the ground. Unlike the dense, tangled growth occupying the ground level of the rainforest, the canopy is leafy and airy. The canopy is also the home to much of the life in the rainforest and indeed the world, housing literally millions of different species of animals and plants.Unfortunately, the number of actual animals you may see on your short tour has a lot to do with chance. For most of the ride, all we saw was a variety of trees and greenery, perpetually shrouded by mist and rain. Although the vegetation was still pretty spectacular, it was not quite the menagerie of exotic animals I was hoping for. We did however see a giant toucan perched upon a tree in the distance, its appearance made all the more striking because its vivid colors contrasted so heavily with the green surrounding it. I would like to return again at another time to get a better glimpse of the diversity of life here.
Going up...

Weird hanging plant.
