About 15 miles north of Jaco is one of the most beautiful rainforests you´ll ever see, and one of the least visited national parks in Costa Rica. Packed with all the bird watching and forest creatures you can handle, Carara National Park is one of the best kept secrets of Costa Rica!
Carara National Park is home to hundreds of species of birds, including motmots, jacamars, antbirds, trogons, and even the endangered Scarlet Macaws. The Scarlet Macaw, or Guacamaya Roja which is all but extinct in most other places of the world, is thriving here at Carara National Park. We told you this place is special! And though the bird watching is definitely out of this world, the forest is teeming with life and you´re also likely to spot adorable Capuchin monkeys, howler monkeys, lazy sloths high in the trees, kinkajous, even jaguars, boa constrictors and crocodiles are known to hang out in this area of Jaco rainforest. Our naturalist guide knows where all their favorite spots are, so stick close, keep your eyes peeled and have your cameras ready!
Fun for the whole family, Carara National Park has some of the finest manicured trails offered in any of Costa Rica´s national parks. They are even wheelchair accessible, putting this rainforest excursion within reach for almost anyone!
