Located only 15 miles from Jaco Beach and Los Suenos, this lesser known sister park to Manuel Antonio is full of wonder and wildlife. Over twice the size of Manuel Antonio, Carara National Park is 52 kms of incredible, unspoiled Costa Rica biodiversity.

Carara National Park boasts more primary rainforest than smaller Manuel Antonio, making your private hike through the dense flora and fauna with one of our certified Naturalist Guides a true eco-journey of discovery.

Costa Rica’s largest remaining population of wild scarlet macaws.

Our expert guides will point out species ranging from exotic parrots, humming birds, jacamars, parakeets and gorgeous water birds ranging from herons to kingfishers. Along with all of these exciting species, Carara National Park is also home to Costa Rica’s largest remaining population of wild scarlet macaws.

Your private day trip to Carara starts with VIP pickup from your local Los Suenos or Jaco Costa Rica hotel or condo. After a short drive north to Carara National park the adventure begins. Hiking quietly through Carara, the park’s incredible wildlife will slowly begin to make itself known.

In addition to the incredible exotic bird species, visitors might also see American crocodiles, poison dart frogs, deer, peccaries, red brockets, capuchin monkeys, howler monkeys, and both two-toed and three-toed sloths.
