The beautiful quetzal, the brown pelican, various parrot species, and the tucano, animate these forests with their colors and vocalizzi. But there are also birds of prey like the vulture and the “jacana” of the north. In the sea there are the giant turtles, which here are reproduced, then the humpback whales, spotted dolphins, dolphins “bottle nose”, orcas, blue whales and sharks. The list is long, but it’s still incomplete! To protect this extraordinary heritage, Costa Rica, through an eyebrow environmental policy, has ordered its wealth in numerous national, land and marine parks, protected areas, fauna huts, Biosphere reserves, etc. Some of these protected parks have been declared World Heritage by Unesco, namely:
