Located on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica, Carara National Park has an amazing diversity of flora and fauna in over 5,000 hectares. Named after the Huetar word for crocodile, this national park is home to several ecosystems such as marshlands, lagoons, and gallery forests. Monkeys, crocodiles, armadillos, peccaries, waterfowls, opossums, sloths, boas, aouti, kinkajou, tayra, margay cats, jaguars, white tail deer and ozelots can be found here, as well as a wide assortment of birds and other reptiles and amphibians. The Carara National Park is also one of the few places where visitors can get to see the rare Scarlet Macaws, Jacamars, and Trogons. The park also has hotels and resorts on the beach, so you can combine a relaxing beachside stay with bird and wildlife watching.
