Costa Rica is full of nature reserves and wildlife parks, but one of the most popular is the Carara National Park, an easy day trip just 2 hours drive from San Jose and a key attraction for cruise travelers docking at the coastal resort of Puerto Caldera. Straddling Costa Rica’s northernmost region of Pacific rainforest and the dryer tropics of the Northwest, the 5,242-hectare park is home to a unique medley of wildlife. With the varied scenery spanning marshlands, lagoons and cloud forests, Carara is renowned for its diversity. Armadillos, possums and sloths can be found crawling through the vines; crocodiles and waterfowl reign over the rivers and margay cats, white tail deer and jaguars roam free in the jungle.
