tropical paradise

The green tree "Palo Verde" maintains green all of the year.
This National Park contains two rivers that feeds the water on it flat landscapes and this is usually flooded in winter (rainy season).


The rivers are the Tempisque and the Bebedero. The park contains a great series of calcium mountains and plains where there are many habitats, marshes, salty and sweet waters, with trees of mangle, higher grass, chumicos ( low plants ), plus other lush forest.

A busy garden forest with selection of natural flowers and variety plants all colors.
Have you ever travel across the pacific ocean coast and you got to go across the sea to Paquera or just a small boat to the closer pacific-islands, as San Lucas ( older prison in our history ) for example: We got these images, pictures from the local fisherman, just in the open ocean.

We found varied classes of aquatics species like birds with higher legs. In this park there are some birds in extinction world-wide, like for example the Gallant without Luck and the Red Lapas (Red Parrots) of the dry pacific.

The park's lagoon contains shrubs and mangles, for use of the white birds, pink herons, and others to sleep and to have chicks.

In various occasions you will also find the white Ibis and the Fisher Eagles.
It is worth it to say that there are many mammals as are the White- Faced Monkey, the White-Tailed Deer, and the scandalous black Congo Monkey.
The Congo monkeys and their family like to cross the road frequently in front of the cars and they hope you don't run over them while they stop and watch you.

Also, watch out for the crocodiles, especially when the waters are low.
Nothing Like the Pacific beach views and the Costa-Rican coast, more than a million worldwide visitors American & Europeans.

This is an outstanding number for a central American country today

la playa

Spectacular landscapes, antique corrals from Colony times can be observed in this area.
To arrive to this fabulous National Park, follow the map route to the Abangares City, about 13 miles, to the West.

Another route will be Puerto Humo, beside the Tempisque River, 3 mile more or less, then we find the Puerto Chamorro.
This is the entrance to the Fluvial Park.

The last alternative to the National Park will be from the Puerto Ballenas and down the River, about 6 miles we find the Chamorro Port and the Park Fluvial.


A car with double traction is necessary, to enter, especially in October and November (the peak of Rainy Season), but in conditions of dry time any car can do it.

It's not possible to make tours farther than South limits of Tempisque River.
This is because of weather and sea changes, winds, and the soft ground, etc.
It is possible to take tourism trips to the islands such as The Coco Island and others in the area.
The Coco Island was named a candidate in 2008 by the Seven Wonders of the World.
From Puntarenas it is difficult to travel by the river waters between November to March because of the strong winds.

Sometimes traveling takes 5 mile per hour for these reasons, but is not usually this slow until the Island of Chira.

In Parque Nacional Palo Verde there are camping facilities with showers. They also offer small tours, bird watching, hiking, traveling across water passages, and horseback riding.

There are three hotels within one hour of the park.
The park is visited by a huge amount of tourists in dry season from December to March.
Another nice park It is the Park Manuel Antonio.
This destination combines beaches, tropical vegetation and animals.
It is located about 40 mile South from Puntarenas ( the downtown port ).
The Chira Island.
It is approximately 52 square kilometers and annually there are rains of 35 inches annually and is approximately 80 F degrees.

This island has a very unique historical value for us, because this is where the main country jail for inmates is that opened in 1873 and till now the small island (olden prison) remains closed down.

These facilities are open to the public as well as other constructions, too.
You have to hire a private boat (after paying a fee at the City Hall) to get to San Lucas, it's about 6 miles from there.

red macaw picture

Picture of Esperanza Bug, " The Green Hope ".

We can see them usually by surprise and when we do find this esperanza insect means that we have the forest close of us and the nature is pure
As a matter of fact the Bug esperanza doesn't hurt anyone at all. It's enjoyable gentle to watch and hold.
A lapa roja picture or red macaw, real Costa Rican restricted bird, loved and protected unique tri main color's flag bird, the macaws.

And restaurants are available, and so is public and private transportation. You will find exotic birds and white-faced monkeys in the Limon area.
It is important to let other people know to where you are going to be, in case of an emergency.
ALWAYS.

Renting a cell phone wouldn't be a bad idea either.
