Corcovado National Park

Corcovado National Park

Osa Peninsula, Puerto Jiménez, Puntarenas,

Corcovado’s 127,000 acres of lush primary rainforest protect an extraordinary array of wildlife. Central America’s largest population of scarlet macaws makes its home here, among some 400 other bird species; so do 100-odd dazzling varieties of reptile—including red-eye frogs, glass frogs (which have transparent skin), and crayon-colored poison arrow frogs. And resident mammals include tapirs, squirrel monkeys, and jaguars (paw prints are usually seen even when the big cats aren’t).
