This conservation area has been declared as 'one of the most biologically intense places on earth' by the National Geographic Magazine for having one of the tallest rainforests in the world and for being the house of many of the country's rare and endangered mammal and bird species. Corcovado features thirteen major ecosystems that range from mangrove swamps, lagoons, beaches, freshwater swamps and primary rain forest. Over 41,000 hectares protect around 140 different mammal species and 400 bird species. Located in the Osa Peninsula, this national park is one of the remotest and largest parks in Costa Rica.
