Monteverde Cloud Forest Costa Rica (2019) | Must see Costa Rica
Monteverde Cloud Forest Costa Rica (2019) | Must see Costa Rica
One of the things Costa Rica is famous for is it's cloud forests and we couldn't visit Monteverde without spending a day exploring the cloud forest in the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve.
Despite being budget travellers sometime we just have to splash out and this is one of those times. A short bus ride from our hostel in Santa Elena we arrived at the cloud forest reserve. We spent the day hiking though the forest and we were not disappointed, great views of the cloud forest, wonderful nature with awesome birds and animals.
The Monteverde cloud forest is definitely one of our must see sites in Costa Rica.

Why I'm in Costa Rica
Here's a little prelude to my Costa Rica travel video -
I've gotten a lot of questions asking what my connection is to Costa Rica, my family history, etc, so I thought I'd answer some of that here. ♡♡
Costa Rica Ecotourism
Ecotourism is big in Costa Rica. This is, after all, a country that harbors some 5 percent of the planet's total biodiversity and is spread thick with forests, mountains, rivers, and oceans.
At its root, ecotourism involves exploring outdoor areas and learning about nature. It brings people outside (to tropical rainforests and active volcanoes, for example), connecting them with a particular place and the wildlife. Eco-activities include hiking, rafting, bird watching, snorkeling, scuba diving, and marine mammal observation.
By their very nature, these activities are educational. On a guided hike through the rainforest, for example, you might learn about the structure of the forest canopy or the medical uses for tropical plants. While on a whale watching tour, you may learn about the migration patterns of humpback whales or how climate change is affecting coral reefs.
Eco-travelers often stay at ecolodges in rural outdoor areas that provide immediate access to nature. The emphasis here, as with all forms of ecotourism, is on the outdoors. Most ecolodges allow you to step out of your room and have instant accesss to the countryside. It's pretty cool.
By connecting people with the environment and teaching them about nature, ecotourism helps impart important environmental lessons. As such, ecotourism involves important aspects of sustainability and conservation.

BEAUTIFUL Desert OASIS or Was It All Just a MIRAGE?!?!
How does a desert oasis form? This tranquil paradise was found deep in the Mojave Desert of California. It had numerous waterfalls, palm trees, natural slides and even a huge hidden cave behind a waterfall. We also saw an abundance of wildlife including rattlesnakes, lizards, frogs and some very interesting insects.

Chapada Diamantina Drone Flight: Rugged, rocky & biodiverse nature preserve known for its waterfalls, caves & former diamond mines. The Chapada Diamantina lies at the center of Bahia State, and forms the northern part of the Espinhaço Mountain Range. It has approximately 38,000 km2 (15,000 sq mi) and encompasses 58 municipalities. Technically this region is considered a part of the caatinga biome, and contains some of its highest elevations, most of it above 500 metres (1,600 ft). The vegetation; a product of the physiographic conditions, is known as cerrado, and consists of rocky plains, dry forests, and caatinga desert vegetation, all of witch harbour a great deal of biodiversity and unique endemisms. The regions is considered to have a Mesotermic climate, of the Cwb type, according to Köppen Climate classifications. It is normally quite cooler than its surrounding areas, with an average annual temperature under 22 °C. The territory of the Chapada Diamantina runs roughly between the cities of Mucugê (13°00′S 41°22′W) to the south, Andaraí (12°48′S 41°20′W) in the southeast, Lençóis (12°33′S 41°23′W) in the northeast, and Palmeiras (12°31′S 41°35′W) in the northwest. This region is named the Serra do Sincorá Ridge. However, the city of Ibicoara, near the southern limits of Chapada Diamantina, is also becoming important. The Sincorá Ridge is North–South oriented and has a length of 160 km and 20 to 30 km of width. It has huge canyons with rivers of brownish waters and several waterfalls. The high altitude grasslands are known locally as Gerais. The trails were once used by miners in their search for diamonds. From Lençóis, one of the most important cities in the area, one can find quite a few ecotourism agencies as well as independent guides. Among the main attractions are the Morro do Pai Inácio (Pai Inácio Hill), Cachoeira da Fumaça, Mixila Waterfall, Sossego Waterfall and the Vale do Pati which is considered the best trekking destination in the country. Rock climbing is a relatively new activity, but is developing quickly as some local and outside climbers are opening more and more routes, mainly in the city of Lençóis and at Vale do Capão, district of Palmeiras and at Igatu, district of Andaraí. Lençóis, one of the main cities, is 428 kilometres (266 mi) from Salvador and can be reached by car, bus or plane. Another important city is Iraquara. It has a lot of caves, where prehistoric rock art and other evidence of primitive life can be found. The Range System has an erosional outlier that exposes a contact, the Pai Inácio Anticline. The Pai Inácio Anticline is 25 km wide and exposes the sedimentary rocks of the Paraguaçu group. At the contact there are two different rock groups exposed one being the Chapada Diamantina and the Paraguaçu, with the Chapada Diamantina overlaying the Paraguaçu group. These two rock formations group not only in elasticity, but in composition as well. The Chapada Diamantina is composed primarily of sandstone, pelites and diamond bearing conglomerates. The Paraguaçu is composed of fine-grained sandstones, siltstones and argillites. The rocks of the Paraguaçu are softer and therefore more susceptible to weathering and folding. It is the folds in the Paraguaçu that allows for the entry of water into the rocks structure which in turn is responsible for the erosion. [wikipedia // Google]

Cocos Island Vacation Travel Video Guide
The fascinating underwater world that surrounds the legendary Cocos Island is a unique treasure. Its biodiversity and vast populations of marine life have turned it into a paradise for both divers and marine biologists alike. From the small harbour of Puntarenas the journey of the Undersea Hunter and its experienced crew travels more than five hundred kilometres in a southwesterly direction, far away from the economic problems of Costa Rica to an unspoiled and natural world, once the haunt of pirates. The journey from the mainland to the isolated and remote Cocos Island takes a little over thirty hours. In the underwater caves, rocky alcoves and ocean bed around Cocos Island there are huge numbers of Whitetip Sharks. Scientists and marine biologists such as Frenchman, Jacques Cousteau, and Austrian, Hans Hass, developed much interest in the island and travelled to this remote location in the South Pacific to document the beauty of this special place. The plant life beneath the water is like that of an enchanting garden. Both the surroundings of Cocos Island and its marine flora are protected as they form the basis of a unique habitat. Here it is rare to spot only a single fish, so diverse and full of life is the ocean close to the island that began to rise from the bottom of the Pacific around two and a half million years ago as a result of volcanic activity. Due to this exceptional habitat and its fantastic biodiversity it is no wonder that the waters of Cocos Island attract divers from all over the world. Nevertheless, the island and the sea creatures that inhabit its coastal waters have been spared mass tourism. Even though no one has discovered buried treasure each member of the expedition has been made richer by their many wonderful impressions of this wonderful island.
