I like to climb things…I think it’s the insatiable curiosity in me!

So there was no way I was turning down the chance to climb INSIDE a tree! In the beautiful cloud forest of Monteverde in Costa Rica lies a Stranger Fig tree. As the tree grows taller, its roots grow towards the ground and nutrients are taken away from the host tree until it dies. This results in a vertical hollowed out tunnel that is truly a natural staircase into the sky!

Ask your hotel for directions to the tree, it’s a 15min walk into the forest from the town centre.

This is a true Pura Vida moment!
