Carara National Park

This small reserve is located near the Tárcoles River. Its transition forest, between the dry tropical forest of the northwest and the humid rainforest of the southern Pacific, is home to many different species of animals and plants. Carara is one of the most important nesting sites for endangered Scarlet Macaws.

Toward dusk, they can be seen returning to their roosts in the river’s mangrove swamps. From the bridge over the Tárcoles River, which is the northern boundary of the park, it is easy to observe immense crocodiles sunning themselves on the sandy banks.
