Guaria Morada and other orchids of Costa Rica

Costa Rica is famous for its more than 1400 species of orchids. Some are small, some large, many are quite showy. The Southern Nicoya Peninsula area is composed mainly of dry forest, most of which was chopped down in the early 20's and 30's, wreaking havoc on the flora and fauna of the area. Costa Rica has an astonishing number of plants, and people are drawn from all over the world to see the beautiful flowers that grow here.  

Of special interest to many are the numerous varieties of orchids.  In fact, Costa Rica has over Thirteen Hundred species of orchids.The best time of the year for orchids in Costa Rica in the wild is just as the rainy season is starting up with the first scant rains. Many of the orchids in nature are triggered into their blooming cycle at that time.
