Jungle in Costa Rica

We have a number of beautiful trees and plants on the property that represent the jungle in Costa Rica. Our guests love to walk and explore our jungle gardens. Recently, we’ve added some hand painted signs to indicate the types of trees on our property with the name in English, Spanish and their scientific name. It’s great to be able to identify the trees you see everyday and what to call them! We’re hoping to add more signs around the property, so that our guests can enjoy learning even more about the tropical jungle and gardens of Ylang Ylang Beach Resort. Over the years, Ylang Ylang has been reforested, which contributes to the ecotourism and environment of the area.
