Juan Castro Blanco National Park is an excellent place for bird watching; especially for spotting the famous Resplendent Quetzal, (Pharomachrus Mocinno) distinguished for its majestically colored feathers.
Many of the prominent rivers of the San Carlos Valley and the Atlantic region originate in the aquifers of this National Park. The total area of the park is 14,250 hectares (approximately 35,200 acres) and was created by decree in 1992, the 60% of the total area of the park is covered by primary forests and the rest consists of patches of secondary forest.
The hike takes about 4 hours along the 5 kilometer (3.10 miles) trail, where you will have the opportunity to learn about the cloud forest, and visit the “Pozo Verde” Lagoon found in an ancient volcanic crater which has several important differences from the lakes of other regions.
