Carara National Park
This is the northern-most region of Pacific rainforest remaining in Costa Rica, and is the beginning of the transition zone into the tropical dry forests of the northwest.
Birds native to both habitats can be found here and the park is therefore a favorite of birders. About 150 scarlet macaws nest and feed throughout the reserve and can usually be seen around dusk flying west down the Río Tárcoles towards the coastal mangroves where they roost for the night. The park is just minutes from your vacation rental.
A cascading 40-foot waterfall, giant rainforest trees and panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean are all part of the ride at the Rain Forest Aerial Tram. Observe life in the forest canopy up close! Skim just above the forest floor in a covered, open-air gondola that seats eight passengers and a bi-lingual (English and Spanish) naturalist guide. The hour-long ride travels into the heart of the rainforest on a 210-acre private reserve located in a transitional area between the drier climate of the northwest and the more humid climate of the southern coast. This is fun for the whole family and learning at its best (education that is fun!).
