Share with nature at the Carara National Park during your vacations in Costa Rica, one of the most beautiful parks in the country
 
By: Melissa Solis C.

Visit the transition zone between the dry and most humid areas of the country, the Carara National Park, which is home to 48% of the total bird species found in Costa Rica.

Located 90 km away from the capital, in the province of Puntarenas, the park was created to contribute with investigations, scientific studies and environmental education.

Here you can find the species protected by this natural center, some endangered, like the American crocodile, the scarlet macaw and the purpleheart or nazareno tree. Some of the animals you can see are: peccaries, anteaters, ocelots and white-faced monkeys.

The park has the greatest diversity of trees in the world and 10 of the least common timber wood trees of the country. Due to the low undergrowth found here, animals and birds in this national park are easily seen.

On your trip you will walk through the trails of the park, where youll learn about the richness of this ecosystem and appreciate the beauties it shelters.

In Carara you can find archaeological remains from 2.000 years ago.

Some of the services and facilities it offers are: viewpoints, chats, auditorium, parking, restrooms, information booth with bilingual staff, trails, lunch area and more.
