Sprawled across 476 square kilometres, the Parque Nacional Braulio Carrillo is a part of the central Volcanic Conservation area and is spread in two provinces –Heredia and San Jose. The park geology is divided into three sections namely Barva, Zurqui, and Quebrada Gonzales, among which the Barva sector is most diverse with geological features like the active Barva Volcano and dormant volcanoes like Cerros Chompipe and Cerro Cacho Negro. The three crater lakes Danta, Copey, and Barva, as well as the rivers Sarapiqui, Sucio, and Patria are also significant in forming bio-diversified rainforest and cloud forest habitat. You will see Hummingbirds, Bare-necked Umbrella Birds, and Solitary Eagles here. Parque Nacional Braulio Carrillo is also a popular hiking spot with treks to La Selva, El Ceibo, and Los Botarramas.
