Corcovado National Park
1. Primary Forest
The park conserves the largest primary forest on the American Pacific coastline and one of the few remaining sizable areas of lowland tropical forests in the world. There are several trails available and tours with or without guide are offered. This truly unique National Park will enchant and impress you!
The Térraba-Sierpe National Wetlands is situated where the mouths of the Sierpe and Térraba rivers meet. This is home to a great variety of indigenous animals & birds such as the Macaw and reptiles including turtles, spoonbills, crocodiles, monkeys, herons, kingfishers, caimans and frogs. These wonderful wetlands and mangroves are an amazing place.
3. Deserted Beaches
One of the most remote beaches in Costa Rica is Playa Carate. It's a long, scenic beach bordered by lush vegetation. Besides swimming, boogie-boarding, beach combing, or just laying back under shady almond trees, reading and relaxing to the sound of the waves you can witness olive ridley, leatherback, green and hawksbill sea turtles coming ashore for nesting, as well as monkeys, squirrels and lazy tapirs. You can also observe the marine life common in the area, like orca's, dolphins and humpback whales.
