Dense rainforests with exotic plants and animals may not be popular for most tourists yet but are appealing to adventurous travelers. Here are the five best rainforest destinations that you may consider in you next travel adventure.

Darien National Park is a massive land of dense jungle and low mountains located in one of the largest protected areas in Central America.

However, day trip guided tours are available.

Dominica is a less developed eco-tourism in a small island located in the Lesser Antilles.

Danum Valley is where carnivorous pitcher plants and gigantic rafflesia flowers can be found. One of Southeast Asia's first eco-resorts with an exotic and almost primordial feel. Borneo Rainforest Lodge offers guests jungle treks, canopy tours and river adventures aside from a nice place to stay.

Tasmania is a temperate rainforest covering ten percent of the island. Considered as one of the most unnoticed destinations in Australia. Leafy trees and vegetation normally found in tropics are rare in this wet landscape. With only approximately 500,000 residents, enjoying the rainforest in solitude is not impossible.
