Costa Rica - Fruit Trees

Another of Costa Rica's marvels are its abundant fruit farms and orchards. The first day of our trip, we saw palm groves that stretched for miles. By the end of the trip we had seen coconut, banana, avocado, mango and many more fruit farms. Coconut, banana and papaya trees randomly grow on the sides of roads and dot the countryside and yards of neighborhoods. And while most locals live in very modest structures which are little more than open air shanties, their yards in contrast are lush and fertile, usually consisting of several fruit trees such as coconut, mango, banana and avocado. There was an avocado tree in front of our house in Pavones the size of an oak tree!
