Corcovado National Park was created in 1975 to protect the area’s abundant plant and animal life from excessive logging and mining. Its jungles and beaches are considered a national treasure for the variety of life that they contain. Visitors traveling on the coastal track may see animals such as scarlet macaws, spider monkeys, or tamandua anteaters, and perhaps the paw prints of the elusive jaguar. The beaches are also nesting places for several varieties of sea turtle, but casual guests are more likely to see the many coati that hunt for moon crabs in the sand.
