Barra del Colorado Wildlife Refuge
Located in Limon Province, bordering the Barra del Colorado River, on the Caribbean coast. This area consists of swampland, almost totally devoid of wooded areas. The topsoil is unsuitable for supporting agriculture or livestock. However, the refuge has great tourist appeal and possesses a wide range of wildlife. This is a very hot and humid tropical rain forest environment, very similar to Tortuguero National Park.
