Growing Teak Trees  

 

In this lush tropical environment teak trees grow very rapidly. The pictures below show teak trees shortly after they were planted and their progress through early 2004.

Playa Tambor is a short forty five minute plane ride from its capital city of San Jose. Tambor's airport makes it convenient for commercial or private flights daily. For those who enjoy boating and scenery, the ferry is an interesting way to travel to the peninsula of Playa Tambor.
