Corcovado Park, the jewel of Central America
On the Pacific Coast, just south of the Osa Peninsula in Costa Rica's Puntarenas province, lies an earthly paradise for environmentalists: Corcovado National Park, and its enormous biodiversity.
"It is the most biologically intense place in the world" according to both National Geographic and Lonely Planet, which recommend the park as a top nature-tourism destination in Central America.
Second in the region is Belize’s North Cays with their breathtaking reefs, followed in third place by the Bay Islands of Honduras.
Lonely Planet is the largest independent publisher of travel articles; its recommendations are based on comments made by hundreds of travelers who go around the world.
