Carara National Park is a forest which connects the Tropical Dry Forest region to the north, and the more humid Pacific Rainforest to the south. Relatively small, covering only 5,200 hectares, the Carara National Park is one of the few remaining breeding grounds for the majestic scarlet macaw which can easily be spotted in the early morning and late afternoon hours.
