I agree with Mrs PBio, we have these in India too. Usually covering long stretches of tall walls. Check out the Wikipedia linkbelow

It is a Vine, I love it, and I have been looking for it in Costa Rica. I know they are all over in California can they be in Costa Rica?

Looks like this may actually be a vine growing in a tree? I'm thinking Campsis radicans, what we call "Trumpet Vine". Hummingbirds love it!
