The Piedras Blancas National Park is one of the last remaining stretches of lowland rainforest in the South Pacific region of Costa Rica. The park protects over 34,595 acres (14,000 hectares) of evergreen primary forest and a great number of indigenous plants and wildlife.

With over 200 inches of rain per year, the dense rainforest contains a number of rare trees. Although all of Costa Rica’s five felines – ocelot, margay, jaguarundi, puma and jaguar – live here, you are unlikely to encounter these elusive and nocturnal cats.

However you will see toucans and scarlet macaws, kinkajous and coatis, white-faced capuchin and spider monkeys, two-toed sloths, anteaters, and many bats. This primary rainforest supports hundreds of different species of birds, including the Fiery-billed Aracari and the Blue-crowned Motmot as well as the endangered Scarlet Macaws, a variety of trogons and many, many more. Bring your binoculars and you will absolutely be delighted by the diversity!
