Black Howler

Black Howler

This is Costa Rica’s most popular national park, in large part due to it magnificent beaches.

It shares many of the bird species found at Carara N.P. but is also a great place for mammals. The most common of the three species of monkey that is found there is the White-faced Capuchin. In fact if you are at the beach, you need to watch to protect your belongings from their attempted thefts. The smaller Squirrel Monkey is also very common, traveling in large groups throughout the park. The least common is the Black Howlers which are less often seen, but commonly heard. Among the other mammals to be found are Two and Three toed Sloths, Coatamundi and Little Brown Anteater.
