Carara National Park is truly a special place and one of the most biodiverse regions in Costa Rica's Puntarenas Province. The myriad array of native species ranges from birdlife like scarlet macaws, toucans, parrots, aracaris, kingfishers and herons, to white-face capuchin monkeys, peccaries, anteaters, poison-arrow frogs and the crocodiles of the Tárcoles River. Located adjacent to the park and five minutes from the river, Villa Lapas Jungle Village is one of the best hotels for exploring this stunning landscape in Costa Rica. 

Hotel Villa Lapas is also only 12 km from Herradura Beach and 15 minutes' drive from Jaco Beach. It features a swimming pool and extensive gardens. 

Overlooking the gardens, the air-conditioned rooms offer contemporary décor, a ceiling fan, a safe and a wardrobe. All are equipped with cable TV. The bathrooms are private and come with a shower and hairdryer. Free Wi-Fi is provided in the restaurant area. All meals included. 

There is a good range of optional activities available, including birdwatching tours, guided trekking and trips to the nearby beaches.
