Rincón de la Vieja National Park
Corcovado
This national park is home to more than 400 species of birds and more than a hundred species each of amphibians and mammals and spans more than 40,000 hectares of protected land. Several habitats can be found inside its borders including montane and mangrove. Corcovado Park is the crown Jewel of the Costa Rican park sysem.  It’s hard to get to the best part of the park,Sirena (means mermaid, but is the ranger station in the center of the park), but it is well worth it.  You want at least 3 days to do Corcovado park right, unless you can afford $250 to fly in and more..
