A major attraction of Palo Verde National Park, located 45 mi/72 km west of San Jose, is the seasonal swampland that provides temporary habitat for thousands of migratory waterbirds (November-February).
The tropical dry forest that covers most of Palo Verde National Park contains such animals as coatis, agoutis, monkeys, white-tailed deer and black iguanas, and crocodiles can frequently be seen along the riverbanks. Scarlet macaws, ibis, roseate spoonbills and frigate birds are among the most common bird species. http://www.nicoyapeninsula.com/paloverde.
