Braulio Carillo National Park

Braulio Carillo National Park is just 30kms from Sam Jose. Within a few minutes of leaving the city you can find yourself in an expanse of virgin forest. There are walking trails of varying lengths, many leading to pretty waterfalls and viewing areas. You’ll have the chance to compare vegetation at different altitudes on a longer hike or by taking walks in different parts of the park. 

Braulio Carillo is crammed with lush green foliage, ferns and bromeliads. And with around 500 species of birds recorded here you may see quetzals, toucans or eagles overhead. You can take a ride in the aerial tram, an open gondola that makes a two level tour of the rainforest canopy, travelling through a valley then ascending a small mountain before returning through the treetops. The ride is accompanied by a naturalist guide.
