PHOTOS: Dry season brings a blast of color to Costa Rica’s treetops
The dry season has come to most parts of Costa Rica and with it the once-a-year burst of color from trees like the Tabebuia ochracea, known locally as corteza amarilla and related to the golden trumpet tree. The Tabebuia rosea, known as roble sabana, erupts with lilac bouquets, and the Erythrina poeppigiana, known as poró gigante, bursts into vibrant orange. If you are traveling around the country, even in downtown San José, keep an eye out — or up — for a flashy surprise.
