Treetop Walkways and Suspension Bridges
We wanted to see the forest in a little bit slower motion than on the zip lines, so we went on a two mile guided hike over trails, walkways, and suspension bridges. Can't really complain about the rain, given that we were in a rainforest, so we put on ponchos, used umbrellas, and only got slightly drenched.
There is intense competition for growing space among the rainforest plants, so you see plant life everywhere. Epiphytes, like orchids, lichens, and mosses, cling to trees for support and gather all of their water and nutrients from the air and surrounding environment. One of the flowers we saw was the passion fruit flower. We were also lucky enough to catch a glimpse of a shy resplendent quetzal and a very wet howler monkey trying to shelter from the downpour.
