Braulio Carrillo National Park is one of the great natural treasures of Costa Rica, both for its biological wealth and for its imposing landscapes. Its high jungle-covered mountains form a natural barrier that separates the Central Valley from the Caribbean region, and through them runs the highway that will bring you to the Costa Rican Caribbean, along a route that will leave you perplexed by the exuberance of its nature. Located in the Central Volcanic Cordillera, between the massifs of the Poás and Irazú volcanoes, in one of the most rugged regions of the country, this park is considered one of the most biodiverse natural spaces on the planet. The fact of having two slopes, its different heights, which range between 36 and almost 3000 meters high, and its climatic variations, between 2 and 24 degrees Celsius, make the place very rich in ecosystems and therefore in diversity. of species. On the other hand, its location gives it vital importance for the protection of aquifers, since many of the springs that irrigate much of the country are located inside it.
