Subject: What Is The National Flower Of Costa Rica?
(Posted on Dec 24, 2013 at 11:18AM )

los suenos costa ricaFlowers dot the Costa Rica landscape, splashing electric colors and heavy perfumes. Every region sees an explosion of pollen and petals each year.

There is one flower, however, that seems to rise above the rest - the Guaria Morada.

The Guaria Morada, or orchid, is a purple plant that thrives along the Central Pacific shore. It's renowned for its vibrant colors and delicate shape, and its blooms are often found winding their way up trees. This is an epiphyte species, which enters a symbiotic relationship with its surroundings and helps to sustain the environment through intense pollination.

This is, perhaps, why it was declared the national plant of Costa Rica in 1939. It perfectly captures the country’s conservational spirit.

When planning a Los Suenos vacation consider more than resort rooms, charter cruises and family packages. Think instead of the striking Guaria Morada and spare time to find it.
