This protected area is relatively small in size but is home to approximately 48% of Costa Rica’s avian species. The importance of Carara stems from its location in a transition area between the tropical dry forest region to the north and the more humid Pacific Rainforest to the South. Carara has flora and fauna from both ecosystems and the virgin forest that covers most of the park is the ideal environment for such rare wildlife as the Scarlet Macaw, the Collared Aracari, and monkeys.
