The Braulio Carrillo National Park (founded 1978) is situated between the Poas Volcano to the west and the Irazu Volcano to the east. The park covers an area of 441 square kilometres. It is named after Costa Ricas third president, Braulio Carrillo (1800-1845).
The park protects an extensive region from the lowlands, near the plains at 200 meters above sea level, to the top of the Barba Volcano (2'906 m). The park contains also the dormant volcanoes Cerro Chompipe, Cerro Cacho Negro and Cerros las Tres Marias. More than 90% of the park are covered by primary forest.
The park also has a rich collection of waterfalls that meander their way through the ravines and come out of the mountain slopes, sheltered with evergreen rainforest thick with ferns, palms, epiphytes and carrizales.
