Birdwatchers rave about the Carara National Park area, because it’s comprised of two distinctive bio-zones, each hosting a variety of birds, including one of the largest remaining wild populations of Scarlet Macaws in Costa Rica. The national park is located in a transitional rainforest between the dry North Pacific Coast and the very wet South Pacific Coast. Carara therefore features plant and animal species from both zones. There are a variety of humid tropical orchids, insects, mammals and birds that can be spotted in Carara. Some of these species are native only to the Central Pacific Coast region. Our professional guide will lead you through this spectacular primary rainforest reserve on a non-strenuous 2.5 – 3 hour guided hike. The guides regularly spot White- throated Capuchin and Howler monkeys, Scarlet Macaws or Lapas, Sloths and dozens of other plant and animal species.
