It feel so great to visit such a nice place. If you wanna see the real rain forest, then this is the place that you must see. Just be careful when driving.

The rain forest is just as inspiring as other places, but this area is renouned for rough thieves so stay in a large group around Braulio Carrillo.

This is the largest preserved area in Costa Rica. I haven't done much of the trails, but this obviously harbors many species that have never been identified.
