Piedras Blancas National Park
The Piedras Blancas National Park, located along Costa Rica's southern Pacific coast just outside the town of Golfito, protects over 34,595 acres (14,000 hectares) of evergreen primary forest and a great number of indigenous plants and wildlife. The creation of this park in 1993, and the subsequent purchasing of privately owned portions for public use, marked a huge victory for conservationists, as much of the area had been previously damaged by deforestation and hunting. Today, the park offers visitors the chance to explore its thriving rainforests and immaculate beaches, winding rivers and powerful waterfalls.
