I have only ever passed through this park on the way to do whitewater rafting with Ríos Tropicales on El Pacuare, but it is breathtaking each and every time.

We visited the Braulio Carrillo park on our Aerial Tram tour; the view going up the mountain was simply incredible, not to be missed.

It is a well maintained and clean park where one can just walk about or just sit, relax, and chill out.

The aerial tram was so peaceful! We only saw an eyelash viper, but I would still recommend it!! There was a tour afterwards through butterfly garden and snake and frog exhibits that I could have done without.

We totally missed the entrance to the park. There was no roadsign. Because the road goes uphill trucks go very slow. There are 3 lanes, but strangly enough always 2 lanes are going down and 1 up.

It is a wild and huge park (more than 20 km).There are a couple of walkable trails and in one of the main entrance you can enjoy a zip line allowing to have an incredible perspective of the park
