Carara National Park
This amazing National Park measures about 4700 hectares and is home to approximately 48% of Costa Rica´s aviary species.
Birdwatchers are interested in the Carara National Park because it presents two life zones and a variety of birds, including one of the largest remaining wild populations of Scarlet Macaw in Costa Rica.
Inside the Carara National Park, there are four trails. These trails are mild in difficulty level for hiking; mostly flat and enjoyable for all ages & abilities.
Meadrica´s Trail: One way in and out. With a lagoon in the middle that holds a good population of crocodiles, birds, iguanas, and more.
Sendero universal: This trail was designed to people with disabilities or people in wheelchairs, it is a loop, and this is a great trail to find Scarlet Macaws, monkeys, agoutis, coatis and rainforest frogs.
