The rainforest has so many things to offer for the vacationer who enjoys nature and the great outdoors. Whether it is the wildlife you enjoy, the lush vegetation, or simply the physical activity of hiking, exploring the rainforest offers a unique opportunity to do all three. Moreover, the rainforests of Central America are a great way to start your rainforest education.

Seeing the Rainforest on a Tour

If you are interested in visiting a rainforest, there are a few things you should know. First of all, if you are not familiar with the terrain or an inexperienced hiker, you should see the rainforest on a tour. A professional tour guide can not only ensure your safety while hiking through the rainforest, he can give you valuable insights into what you are seeing.

Tour guides can also take you to the areas that will have the best sights at particular times of the year. You have a better chance of seeing wildlife as well as interesting plant life when on a guided tour. Tour guides are also skilled at identifying what you are seeing.

Going on a jungle tour in Costa Rica is a truly unique experience. Costa Rica rainforests have hundreds of species of birds and many other kinds of wildlife. You can take a multiple-day tour, a one-day tour, or a half-day tour depending on your interests and schedule. Novice hikers may want to opt for the one-day tour or half-day tour as the terrain can be arduous at times. You want to enjoy yourself but not wear yourself out for the rest of your vacation.
