Directions to Guanacaste National Park
Guanacaste National Park is spread over 83,000 acres located in the northern part of Costa Rica. The park features volcanos, wet and dry forest, over 100 species of mammals, 300 species of birds, over 10,000 different insects and 100 species of reptiles and amphibians.
The steep terrain surrounding the Cacao Volcano transitions from dry tropical forest in the lowlands to cloud and rain forest in the higher altitudes. This sector protects the headwaters of several important rivers at the continental divide and houses a biological station that conducts research in aquatic biology and insects. There are two other biological stations in the park as well with some facilities and overnight accommodations offered.
As you hike through this wonderous area you may come across petroglyphs (rock carvings) that date back to pre-Columbian times as there are hundreds of them scattered about. The slopes of Cacao Volcano and the majestic conical Orosi Volcano are great attractions in the park and a must see if you are visiting the Guanacaste area.
