Carara National Park, in the Central Pacific region, is considered by many to be one of the best birding locations in Costa Rica. It consists of transitional lowland forest where the more humid forests of the southern Pacific coast blend and overlap with the drier forests of the northern Pacific coast. The ranges of many birds found to the north extend to Carara and not much beyond. The same is true of many birds found to the south. The result is a unique zone of overlap where both northern and southern species can be seen in the same place. (From: www.exoticbirding.com)

The Reserve's streams and forested ridges are haven to other wildlife as well, including the American Crocodile, Howler Monkeys and Scarlet Macaws. Driving time San Jose-Carara: 2 hrs. 30 min. This tour is operated by Costa Rica Expeditions.
