Costa Rica is held up as a shining example of eco best practice. It has gained a worldwide reputation among tourists for its stunning biodiversity along with its varied terrain and at least six distinct types of ecosystem.
Wildlife in Barra del Colorado is abundant. These photos represent some of the more common wildlife seen in the area. Many species of mammals, reptiles and birds can be seen on a daily basis.
If you’re interested in Ecotourism, the best time to visit Silver King is from February to April when the weather is dry. During this time, you could spot toucans, caimans, monkeys, frogs, crocodiles, sloths, macaws, jacanas, falcons and a variety of other animals, birds and reptiles amid the lush topical trees found here. With its many rivers, creeks and lagoons, this Costa Rica is also a fantastic place to fish, and is among the best sport fishing destinations in the world. Snook, Snapper, Mackerel and Tarpon are main sport fish caught around here. However, found in the waters of the Rio San Juan are Bull Sharks that have migrated upriver from the Atlantic Ocean. *Photo Credit: Jean Scribner
