La Amistad National Park
La Amistad National Park is the largest park in Costa Rica. It covers more than 190 000 hectares of tropical forests, rivers, valleys, mountains and hills. La Amistad even has a large part inside the territory of Panama, where it has about 100 000 hectares in size. It is a park that runs from the Caribbean region to the Pacific area, and covers most of the Cordillera de Talamanca. In its forests there are Indigenous people who still live in a very rural lifestyle. Among the species of flora and fauna there are Jaguars, Pumas, monkeys, tapirs, many species of birds, reptiles, amphibians, mammals and more. The park is not highly visited, and there are many trails that traverse the forests, however, for the adventurous, it is the best nature adventure destination and one of the most fascinating nature destinations in Costa Rica. There are entries from the Caribbean and several entries from the Pacific, near Buenos Aires and San Vito de Coto Brus.
