Explore the Rainforest

Looking less and less likely … because, as you probably already know, its disappearing at an ever increasing rate. Your next best option just might be a short hike on the Rainforest trail, where you’ll be able to see some of the same plants that grow in a true rain forest.

If you’re fortunate enough, there will be an opportunity to view the beautiful vanilla orchid in bloom. Look for signs pointing to mahogany, the water-vine, all-spice, gumbo-limbo, the bullet tree and others …



Rain forests
help moderate global temperatures by absorbing CO2 emissions, crucial for the well being and survival of Earth’s life-forms. The threat of mankind destroying the remaining tropical rain forests, in the not-to-distant future, is a grave problem that should concern us all.

Did you know?…Twenty-five percent of all prescription medications are made using some type of compound from living organisms found in the rain forest.
