For all of you nature lovers out there, this is your chance for the most incredible and fulfilling adventure of your life! Not only will you get the chance to see some of the bost exotic and beautiful flora and fauna in the world, but you will also get to experience the scale and magnificence of the largest and most remote National Park in the Costa Rican territory! Yes you guessed it! – we are referring to the incredible La Amistad International Peace Park!
La Amistad park is the largest, protecting over 479,000 acres of the most naturally intense forest in the country – that’s like 570 times the size of NYC’s central park. So yeah, it’s huge! To top that off the park was included as a World Heritage Site which also makes it extremely unique.
Because of the size of the actual park, there are so many habitats and elevations that you will find yourself hiking through very different sceneries. Elevations range from 145 – 3549 meters above sea level. Also, you will find everything from Tropical wet forests to Subalpine/Tundra habitats.
If you are planning your visit to La Amistad Park there are a few things you should know first. Much of the park has never been fully explored, so having a guide take you through the few explored areas is definitely a must! Also, one of the area’s perks is it’s amazing wide variety of wildlife. If you are lucky enough, you will get to see giant anteaters, tapirs, pumas and even jaguars! (We told you it was intense). An interesting fact about La Amistad International Park, is that it is home to 22 out of the 27 endangered species (birds and mammals). So visiting this jaw dropping park will literally give you a once in a lifetime opportunity of really experiencing nature to its fullest!
La Amistad International Park is not for the faint hearted as there is much walking to do and the climate is quite extreme (located on the Caribbean coast). There are no paved roads to get to the actual park, so a 4-wheel drive vehicle is absolutely necessary!
