Parque Nacional Corcovado
Perhaps the most famous attraction in the area is Corcovado National Park. Here is what has been said about Corcovado: ' Corcovado is unquestionably the most raw, challenging and rewarding park in Costa Rica. It is truly the mother of all parks Corcovado presents, perhaps, the best opportunity to view such a large variety of wildlife.'.
It's possible to talk about the reason why Corcovado National Park draws so many people to it every year. This park protects 44,484.00 hectares, divided in marine area of 1,914.00 hectares. And the land area rich the 42,570.00 hectares. Because of its isolated location, Corcovado protects animals that are scarce in other areas, such as the tapir, the crocodile, the ocelot, the jaguar, the giant anteater and the harpy eagle. Marine turtles such as the leatherback, the olive ridley and the green turtles arrive to nest at Llorona Beach, which is fortunately included in the park....
Corcovado National Park is truly a biological gem. It can also prove to be an incredible adventure, both before getting there and afterwards. This is where visitors have more of a chance of spotting rare wild animals, and of temporarily inhabiting one of the world's most pristine and unspoiled areas. Its isolation, rather than being a disadvantage, is a great benefit for the area, because it keeps the effects of civilization down to a minimum. Corcovado National Park should be visited before the number of visitors increases, thus spoiling its virginal nature. .
