Palo Verde National Park
Founded in 1980, the Palo Verde National Park covers an area of 44,478 acres (18,400 hectares), and is a biogeographical site of the Bajuras de Tempisque in Guanacaste, an area characterized by a mosaic of many habitats in wetlands, rivers and limestone hills. The protected area of Palo Verde is subject to seasonal flooding. During the rainy season this is due to the bad drainage, the overflowing rivers Tempisque and Bebedero and the tides. From the viewpoints on the Catalina and Guayacana hills, you can admire the beautiful marshes, covering vast parts of the province of Guanacaste, and observe numerous birds.
