I haven't been to the National Park for a few years so I thought I would go with some friends who were visiting from Tampa.

Another A. standleyanum growing in the forest. You can see why one of the common names is "black palm". The spines on the trunk make it appear black.

We were hot and sweaty after hiking through the park so we cooled off in the pool

Almost no people!? Except for the one photo with cars and signs, this brings back warm memories of 35 years ago... I like it like that. Thanks, Jeff.

Pat, I was telling my friends about you and how you visited this place years ago when it was privately owned. You knew the owner's daughter, right?

Yes, Kathy Bergeron. She was my classmate, and a very nice person. There, I tried for the first time in my life a real banana bread eaten in such a lovely place, with nobody around but the Bergeron's. It was close to being in Paradise :winkie:

I think that's the Bactris species with the fruits that taste just like Concord grapes.
Thanks so much for sharing photos. It brought back memories of my visit. The coastline has an odd resemblance to parts of the Oregon coast with the sea stacks and coves covered in lush greenery. But of course warm and tropical.

Hi Jeff, This is the first time I've seen this thread. I still have a few palms I've been trying to identify and then I was going to post. It was more difficult than I thought it would be to identify the different species in their native habitat. We visited the park and I photographed some of the same palms you did at least now I have an id on some of them. Great photos of the park, thanks for posting them, I wish I had seem them before we visited Costa Rica. One thing for sure is that as nice as the pictures are, there is nothing like being there in person. Such a beuatiful paradise you and others are fortunate enough to live in
