Fodor's Review

Birds are the main attraction at this nature reserve just south of San José; it's home to several species native to Africa, including the camachuelo trompetero (large-beaked bullfinch), which is not found anywhere else outside Africa. Check out the Centro Las Amoladeras visitor center at the park entrance, which has an exhibit and information on the region and organizes guided walks and tours of the area.
