Corcovado National Park plays the role of conservationist to so many things here in this Costa Rican region. From safeguarding Montane forest habitats and cloud forests suffused with tree ferns and oaks to swamp and Yolillo forests (where you’ll find many a palm), a mangrove forest spreading on the Llorona estuaries as also Rivers Corcovado and Sirena, and finally a freshwater herbaceous swamp.
