Getting its name from [Costa Rica's](/costa-rica) third president, Dr. Braulio Carrillo, the national park, full of tropical rainforest, spans northeast of the [Central Valley](/costa-rica/regions/central-valley). Flowing down from the Central Volcanic Corridor, Braulio Carrillo National Park (Parque Nacional Braulio Carrillo) falls between the Poas Volcano to the west and the Irazu Volcano to the east. The protected zone encompasses 108,970 acres (44,100 ha) of rolling hills crammed with dark-green vegetation that teems with wildlife.
