Gateway to the beautiful Corcovado National Park
Located in the southern part of the Puntarenas province, Puerto Jimenez is a laidback town and one of the main gateways to the beautiful Corcovado National Park;. With some world class angling, eco tours are the major draw of this town where you can spot up to 4 different monkey species and many brightly colored birds. Carate is also an important wildlife spot in this area. Located right next to the amazingly beautiful Corcovado National Park near the La Leona Ranger In Carate, you will have the opportunity to watch Pacific Ridley and Leatherback sea turtles come ashore to nest and lay their eggs on the beach. There are plenty of hiking opportunities around Carate as well as plenty of deep sea fishing.
