Nature Reserves of Costa Rica

Nature Reserves seek to preserve and rehabilitate Costa Rica’s tropical ecosystems and their biodiversity. The reserves differ from National Parks in that community and conservationist groups manage their land. Visitor revenues are used to maintain the trail system, pay park staff, and purchase surrounding land for protected zone expansion.
