Carara National ParkBirders won't want to miss Carara National Park, a critical habitat for Costa Rican birds, including the gorgeously plumed scarlet macaw that's spotted here frequently. The park is a transition zone, marking a boundary between the tropical rain forest and the dry forests of northern Costa Rica. In addition to the variety of avian life, observant visitors are likely to spot agoutis, margays, pacas, sloths and even the poison dart frog.
