Carara National Park Birdwatching Tour

Less than two hours away from the crowds at Manuel Antonio waits Carara National Park. 

This vestige of wildlife preservation boasts more primary rainforest than its neighbor, meaning denser growth and more moisture. These conditions are prime for insects and this abundance of bugs makes Carara a haven for Costa Rica’s majestic tropical birds.

Explore the park with a knowledgeable guide skilled at spotting birds and other wildlife. See scarlet macaws, orange-chinned parakeet, yellow-bellied trogon, and a plethora of hummingbirds. 

Crocodiles, poison dart frogs, monkeys, and sloths round out the biodiversity, making Carara a must-see for birdwatchers and animal-lovers alike.
