Costa Rica Tours Carara Reserve in Costa Rica
This is the northernmost region of Pacific rainforest remaining in Costa Rica, and is the beginning of the transition zone in the tropical dry forests of the northwest.
Carara is one of the most popular national parks in Costa Rica, largely due to its proximity to San Jose.
This is also where many cruise passengers are bused for a day trip, when the cruises that stop just off the coast of Puerto Caldera, and a common destination for school trips is the favorite children.
Attractions such as Carara national park heaven for birds lovers, for several reasons, in addition to its ease of access.
First, its position in a transition zone means that residents of both habitats are likely to appear. Second, the Rio Grande de Tarcoles has free flowing sections and its waters seep into seasonal swamps and shallow oxbow lake covered with hyacinths further expanding the number of local habitats. Finally, because it is slightly dryer, and not all trees are evergreen, Carara is more open than the rain-forests further south making wildlife easier
