Braulio Carrillo National Park

The vast protected forest of Braulio Carrillo National Park may be divided by one of the nation’s busiest highways, but this just means easy access for travelers, as well as the possibility of picturesque views without ever having to leave the car.

Lazy travelers can traverse the highway snapping photos of lush landscapes from the comfort of their car seats, while those eager to get back to nature can embark on one of the miles of trails leading to the waterfalls, open pastures and mountain stations that dot the rainforest. An Aerial tram on the eastern side of the park offers open gondola rides through the dense understory and canopy of the woods, where its possible to spot the sloth and other forest creatures that call Braulio Carrillo National Park home.

Practical Info

Buses to Guapiles, Siquerres and Limon will drop travelers at either of Braulio Carrillo National Park’s ranger stations. Entry to the park is US$7 and the main station is open daily from 8am until 4pm. The season is driest in March and April, while wetter weather tends to occur from May through November.
