  • The Parque Nacional Carara’s main entrance is located 2 kilometers south of the Río Grande de Tárcoles Bridge. Its name in the indigenous language Huetar means “River of Lizards”, has the only transitional forest of the Central Pacific, which translates into diversity of flora and fauna, where species of dry and humid forests converge. This National Park is a world-renowned ornithological destination because it has very diverse avifauna, where the Red Macaw stands out, species that is in danger of extinction, being the second largest Psittacine species in Costa Rica. Carara is considered an excellent living laboratory, where you can study the structure and functioning of tropical ecosystems and the relationship between them, also has numerous vestiges of Pre-Columbian indigenous occupations, which to date are not open to the public. The Parque Nacional Carara is also a favorite for anyone interested in the study of tropical biology. The wide variety of diversity and easy access makes this trip one that is truly worthwhile. The conservation zone presents a very particular reason, this is the transition zone between the dry forest of the north and the rain forest of the south. Many endangered species live and breed here, such as the American Crocodile and the Purple Heart tree.
