Carara National Park

Carara National Park is located in the conservation area of the Central Pacific of Costa.

It was established as a biological reserve on April 27th, 1978 but in 1990 the government upgraded its category to a national park due to the massive number of tourists who visit it.

In Carara National Park you have the chance to find the four different types of forest in Costa Rica and a complete sanctuary of birds, more than four hundred species, including the beautiful red macaw.
