Carara Biological Reserve



Set on the Pacific coast 40 mi/65 km southwest of San Jose, Carara protects a transition zone between the tropical dry forests of the north Pacific slope and the rain forests to the south. It holds some of the last remaining scarlet macaws as well as monkeys and crocodiles. The park can be visited on an escorted day trip from San Jose.

The Pacific Aerial Tram is located adjacent to the park. Phone 506-2257-5961. Toll-free 866-759-8726 (from the U.S.).
