The drive through the Park is truly beautiful but my biggest complaint is that it needs widening since it can be a long drive if you get behind a truck or a vehicle breaks down on the road.

This park was set aside by the president it is named for. Even though the main highway from the Pacific to the Atlantic passes through it, development along the road has not been permitted and on the drive you are plunged into the most primeval rain forest.

Lovely park to see beautiful animals free in the nature, you'll live the rainforest in a very nice way and incredibly near by.

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. I think if we didn't have the kids with us, I would try to do the hiking but I'm not sure if that's... More
