Over an hour of flying and not a break in the forest. Pristine, high canopy rainforest spread beyond the horizon in all directions. Then the plane tilted and those on the left side of the plane saw it first… the “largest,” single-drop waterfall in the world. The captain circled around so those on the right side had the photo opp as well.
Atop the plateau is a chapter out of The Lost World. I expected T-Rex to make an appearance at any moment! However, the biggest carnivore we found was an endemic bromiliad. No worries about being chased by a plant! Within another larger, but non-carnivorous bromiliad lives an endemic Golden Frog. Often several in one plant. If you look close at the image above… to the right, behind the frog is a tadpole. These frogs can live their complete life cycle within one plant.
