Location

Puntarenas, Costa Rica

Carara National Park is a national park in the Central Pacific Conservation Area located near the Pacific coast of Costa Rica. Carara lies about 30 miles west of the Costa Rican capital of San José and about 15 miles north of the beach town of Jacó. The park protects the river basin of the River Tárcoles, near Orotina and includes one of the largest remaining populations of wild scarlet macaws in the country. The 13,000-acre park encompasses a transitional forest of both dry and tropical rainforest.


Wildlife enthusiasts will relish spotting sloths, anteaters, agouti, white-faced monkeys, vine snakes, boas, kinkajous, margay cats, collared peccaries and white-tailed deer. Among the 400 species of birds that live in the park are toucans, roseate spoonbills, jacanas, herons, manakins, trogons and scarlet macaws.


Venture into the park early in the morning with a guide ($25-$40 per person) for the best chance to see white-faced, howler and spider monkeys swing through the canopy looking for fruit like those found on the gnarled branches of the strangler fig trees – sometimes you can even see both howlers and white-faced sharing the same trees. Scarlet macaws fly through the forest, perching on royal palms and squabbling over fruit among the park's 400 other species of birds. Sloths, peccaries, agoutis, coatis, basilisk lizards and boa constrictors are just a few of the other animals dwelling in the park.


The Tarcoles River with its 2,000 crocodiles forms the northern boundary of Carara National Park. These prehistoric reptiles can measure more than 20 feet from snout to tail and can be seen under the Tarcoles River bridge on Route 34 while heading to the park from San Jose.


Carara National Park is roughly an hour and a half drive from San Jose, or the Juan Santamaria International Airport (SJO).
