Palo Verde National Park comprises 13,058 ha. of varied habitats in the lower Tempisque River basin which includes important wetlands and woodlands.

I would recommend taking the boat trip which runs by Bird Island, a breeding site for Cattle Egrets, Roseate Spoonbills , Wood Storks, Anhingas, Great Egrets, and Black-crowned Night-Herons. Great Blue Heron and Bare-throated Tiger Heron may also be seen as well as Neotropic Cormorant and Amazon
Kingfisher
. Black-bellied Whistling-Ducks and Northern Jacanas are resident.

Mammals include Collared Peccaries, White-faced Capuchin Monkeys, Howler Monkeys, White-nosed Coatis, White-tailed Deer, and Variegated Squirrels.

You may also expect to see some large Iguana sunning themselves on the mangrove banks.
