Corcovado National Park
Looking out over the Guanacaste province, the misty green slopes of Costa Rica's Corcovado National Park rise up to form one of the most impressive and biologically diverse sights in Central America.
The park is Costa Rica's largest, and covers an area of nearly 140,000 acres of rainforest, cloud forest, mangroves and coral reefs. It is also one of the most biodiverse places on Earth, with over 400 species of birds, 100 species of mammals and a vast array of plant life. Visitors can explore the park on foot, by boat or by horseback, and can expect to see everything from Baird's tapirs and spider monkeys to jaguars and harpy eagles.
