  • History and nature are intertwined in this site, located in Guanacaste and considered a World Heritage Site. Scenario of the historic battle of March 20, 186, Parque Nacional Santa Rosa is the only Wild Protected Area that has a historical museum within its territory. In this site, declared as world heritage, the only spot of dry tropical forest in Mesoamerica is conserved. In addition, the area is totally connected to humid, cloudy and rainy forests, which makes it possible to have an important biological richness. Also in the Park are some of the oldest lands in Costa Rica, which emerged from the sea more than 85 million years ago. Santa Rosa preserves the most important sample of protected dry forest in Central America. This forest is characterized by a marked difference between the rainy season and the dry season, when it loses most of the foliage. In the coastal sector, the red mangrove predominates, as well as other species of mangrove vegetation in Costa Rica. Inside the park is the Historical Museum Casona de Santa Rosa, which was created as a National Monument and stone pens. As befits the first national park funded in Costa Rica, the Parque Nacional Santa Rosa has some of the best camping sites you can find. The facilities are well maintained and comfortable for campers of all levels of experience. Parque Nacional Santa Rosa is a dream destination for anyone who loves wildlife, surfing or exotic destinations. Visiting this national wonder should be a priority while you are in Costa Rica.
