Braulio Carrillo National Park

Location: Central Valley & Highlands

Many parts of Braulio Carrillo National Park remain unexplored even though it lies only 20 kilometeres from the San José area. Most people access the park from the Siquirres Highway. The park headquarters is 1 kilometer from the Zurqui tunnel. Another part of the park is the Barva Volcano accessed from the city of Heredia. You can also reach the park from La Selva Biological Station, but you must have a guide.

The Rainforest Aerial Tram is located adjacent to Braulio Carrillo. For those who cannot or do not want to hike, this is a way to see the forest. Otherwise, we think it is too touristy.

Activities in the area: Hiking.
