Carara National Park is open every day, and the entrance fee is 8 USD. Ola Bonita Apart Hotel recommends you to go with a naturalistic guide, who will uncover for you the wide range of fauna hidden in such beautiful nature.

Hermosa Beach, National Wildlife Refuge

Hermosa Beach, as its name shows, is a place of great beauty, which is protected as a National Wild Life Refuge due to its important biological richness. Its main character is the Lora Turtle that arrives to lay its eggs on this beach between August and December.

In contrast with other beaches where Lora Turtles come in big groups, here they come individually. It is hoped that you are lucky enough to watch this incredible marine species laying their eggs. There is a program on Hermosa Beach in charge of the study and protect this emblematic animal.

Tárcoles, a contact with the most authentic nature

The small town of Tarcoles is located in an enclave of great beauty and biological richness, in front of the Pacific Ocean, on the Grande de Tarcoles riverside, and tucked in by the hills of Carara National Park. The Tarcoles is a famous River due to the high rate of crocodiles living in it, approximately 30 per square kilometer, something really extraordinary.

Guacalillo Mangrome (Manglar de Guacalillo) is located on the river’s mouth. An important ecosystem for many animals, more than 200 bird species stand out, among them the most colorful, the red limpet.

You can navigate this river on a boat; see the crocodiles, and visit the mangrove with any of the companies that offer this kind of trip.

Carara National Park is a trunk full of treasures, a real living laboratory. There are two trail areas to walk; the path on the north side of the park extends along the river, where lagoons and marshes are formed. The south side has paths across hills and gullies. The park has also stayed in Jaco, due to its proximity.
