Watching wildlife in Braulio Carrillo

Share

Due to its enormous size and varied altitude, Braulio Carrillo has one of the highest levels of biodiversity in Costa Rica, with over 530 species of birds, including the rare quetzal (mostly seen at higher elevations), toucans, trogons and eagles, and some 135 species of mammals, such as collared peccary, paca, jaguar and ocelot.
