Family-friendly

Central America’s largest population of scarlet macaws can be found in Corcovado’s 127,000 acres of primary rain forest, among some 400 other bird species. The extraordinary wildlife that can be seen here includes red-eyed tree frogs, entirely transparent glass frogs, squirrel monkeys, and jaguars, though you're more likely to see a paw print than glimpse a big cat. Needless to say, Corcovado offers some of the best hiking the country.
