It has drastic temperature and humidity changes, crystal-clear streams, rapids, waterfalls and many species of plants and animals. Here you can find exposed forests in the top of the hills shaped by the wind, which gives them a short size. Unlike these forests, the protected forests have very tall trees decorated with orchids, bromeliads, ferns, lianas and mosses. You can also find swamp forests in low drainage areas.
