Images: Flowers of Costa Rica

I love snapping photos of the colorful flowers I find around the world, and Costa Rica did not disappoint. From the huge mounds of blue and purple hydrangeas to the delicate golden orchids found in the rainforest, Costa Rica was a living rainbow. There’s no way I could capture it all, but here are a few of the flowers that I found particularly beautiful.

    No idea what the name is, but I really love the 5th one from the top! I wish we would have flowers like these in Holland.

      I wish we had these flowers where I lived too, but if we did, then I wouldn’t appreciate them as much when I travel!

    Birds of Paradise – 5th from the top. Great series. Costa Rica is truly a flower paradise and has over 800 varieties of orchids. Cheers!
