Maquenque National Park
Maquenque National Park
National Park
is a proposed National Park, which would form part of the Arenal Huetar Norte Conservation Area, in the northern part of Costa Rica. It would bring together a number of existing Nature Reserves, Wildlife refuges and Forest Reserves to form a new National Park. The park would cover areas between the San Carlos River and the Sarapiquí River and other areas near the Nicaraguan border. Among the existing reserves that would be consolidated would be Cerro El Jardin Forest Reserve, Cureña Forest Reserve, Laguna Maquenque Wetlands and the Lacustrino de Tamborcito Wetlands. The area contains large amounts of Almendro trees (Dipteryx oleifera), a favored food source of the Great Green Macaw,[1] which has led the World Parrot Trust among other organisations to campaign to create this national park.

Barbilla National Park is a National Park in the Caribbean La Amistad Conservation Area of Costa Rica located on the eastern slopes of the Cordillera de Talamanca. It protects forests as well as Laguna Ayil and Cerro Tigre and the Dantas River watershed, covering parts of both Cartago and Limón Provinces. It was initially established in 1982. The park protects over 29,500 acres (11,938 ha) of humid lowlands tropical forest. It's one of the country's least-visited parks; this has allowed the park to remain ecologically rich and diverse.

The park also protects the Dantas River Watershed, which is an important source of water for the people and animals of the region.
