 South Caribbean

This coastal area contains the most diverse and colorful marine life, submerged on the country's largest living coral reefs. Its exquisite forests have high biodiversity and the Talamanca mountain peaks project above the clouds. You can walk along a flat path between the beach and the jungle where howler monkeys and white-faced capuchins frolic in the trees, and blue-metallic butterflies flutter along the way. The reefs consist of species such as brain coral, elkhorn coral and sea fans. Sponges, sea urchins and lobsters inhabit the reef along with more than 100 species of fish, including puffers, angelfish, porcupinefish and parrotfish.
