In Las Brisas de Veragua, this bells-and-whistles rainforest adventure park is nestled into the foothills of the Cordillera de Talamanca. The sprawling complex has guided tours of the forest along elevated walkways, along with such attractions as an aerial tram, a reptile vivarium, an insectarium, and hummingbird and butterfly gardens. At research time the park was converting to solar power.

There's also a zipline canopy tour. Installations include a cafeteria and gift shop. Many of the attractions are wheelchair accessible. To get here, take the signed turnoff south from Hwy 32 at Liverpool, 12km west of Puerto Limón.
