The forest is home to 300 varieties of plants, shrubs and vines that crawl over every tree. The island boasts close to 100 species of wild orchids as well.
The local wildlife is relatively harmless. The racoons which are always showing a friendly grin were proclaimed the Emblem of the National Park.
