You will face a National Park in the Central Pacific Conservation Area located near the Pacific coast of Costa Rica.
The Carara National Park was established on April 27, 1978 as a biological reserve, but its growing popularity after 1990 forced the government to update its status to a national park due to the large number of tourists who visited it. Thus, in November 1998, Carara moved to the national park category.
The park protects the Tcoles river basin, near Orotina and includes one of the largest populations of red macaws left in the country.
The dense growth of trees makes Carara a refuge for many bird species, and the park is a popular bird watching destination. In addition to the red macaws, the birds found in Carara include orange-chinned parakeets and other parrots, hummingbirds, woodpeckers, motmots, jacamares, manakins, anteaters and various species of trogons. Several species of waterfowl inhabit the park as well. These include Anhinga, several species of herons, several species of egrets and kingfishers.
Among the reptiles present in the park are the American crocodile and several species of snakes and lizards. Green and black poisonous frogs are among the amphibians present. Mammals include white-tailed deer, red deer, collard peccary, agouti, kinkajous, white-faced capuchin monkeys, howler monkeys, two sloths; However, mammals can be difficult to see due to dense tree cover.
