A hike through rainforests in Costa Rica is no ordinary adventure, as howler monkeys screech in the distance, the red macaws play overhead and a mysterious blue morpho butterfly lures you on down the trail. If you seek higher altitudes, one of the country's cloud forests will have you jumping like Ichabod Crane in a scene out of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, as eerie clouds rush through all day long, inhibiting visibility and randomly unveiling rich green natural landscapes and other natural treasures. Even if you are looking for a beach escape, it is highly recommended that you fit in a walk through the woods in one of Costa Rica's tourist-friendly wilderness destinations.
