  • The Parque Nacional Guanacaste has become a natural treasure for Costa Rica, as its impressive landscapes have been declared by UNESCO as a natural heritage for humanity. The Park is located on the eastern side of the Interamerican Highway, in front of the Santa Rosa National Park. Created in 1989 for the protection of tropical forests on the slopes of the Orosí and Cacao volcanoes, this project was founded to protect the migratory routes of hundreds of animals that migrate to highlands during the dry seasons. The park contains several very interesting trails, was well as several study stations, of which at least one is open to the public, photographers and researchers. A staggering 84,000 hectares, the Parque Nacional Guanacaste protects the migratory passage of a plethora of species that move seasonally between the lowlands over the Cordillera de Guanacaste to the steep highlands during the dry season. Jaguars, mountain lions, tapirs, sloths, monkeys, armadillos, coatis, deer, pumas, ocelots, peccaries and a variety of migratory birds, birds, butterflies and moths all live in this national park. A project of Dr. Daniel Jenzen, the Parque Nacional Guanacaste is home to a number of habitats as well, such as tropical lowland dry forests, pastures, tropical cloud forests, savannas, rainforests and Caribbean wet forests. The purpose of this beautiful national park was also to look after and safeguard the volcano slope, evergreen forest and the cloud forests of Cacao and Orosí volcanoes.
