Palo Verde National Park is located in Central Guanacaste, on the Banks of the Tempisque River, the second largest river in Costa Rica. Palo Verde is highly regarded as being one of if not the most important wetland system in all of Costa Rica. It serves as a sanctuary for birds, reptiles, amphibians, insects, mammals and hundreds of species of plants, trees and aquatic fauna. The Palo Verde National Park and Dr. Rodriguez Caballero reserve are a green heart in the country’s driest province. The park has several trials entering from its Eastern side ( through Canas ) and it can also be visited by boat, from the western side. The park is also one of the last protection zones for the Pacific Coast mangroves. The park is also considered by birders and biologists alike as a MUST SEE destination, with plenty of unique species of wildlife inhabiting within its borders. One day tours from Guanacaste depart daily, however, for a more in depth visit, we suggest entering by land.
