Chirripo National Park, Costa Rica

Costa Ricaā€™s ChirripĆ³ National Park is a great place to visit for tourists who don't mind some serious hiking. The park is home to Cerro ChirripĆ³, the country's highest mountain. If you are able to make it to the top of the mountain, you'll see spectacular views of of both the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Ocean. If you're not sure you can handle mountain climbing, the park has many other things to offer.



There is a huge variety of vegetation to be admired at ChirripĆ³ National Park. Many plants there can only grow in high elevations and can only be seen in a few other places in the world. You'll also be able to admire animals as well as types of fungi and insects that are protected inside the park. This is definitely a great way to see what the nature of Costa Rica truly has to offer.

Not sure how that's relevant to the park, but awesome video nonetheless.
