Barra Honda National Park lead us to an intricately large system of limestone caverns, which house a multitude of capricious forms and figures. Caves there today, were carved out by the action of rain filtering through the limestone for over 70 million years.

Barra Honda National Park is a national park in Costa Rica in territories that do not exceed 423 m in altitude. Located on the Nicoya peninsula, the limestone reefs of the Miocene predominate, rising above the silting plains of the Tempisque River.

The erosion of these deposits has generated a karst relief, having discovered to date more than forty caverns (La Trampa, Santa Ana, Terciopelo or Pozo Hediondo), which are unevenly affected by rainfall exceeding 2,000 mm per year. These caves serve as habitat for various species of bats. The climate, humid and warm, has favored the development of a vegetation of strawberry trees, Poroporo, cocobolo, Caoba, pochote, gallinazo, indio desnudo and peine de mico, which constitute the habitat and food for numerous deer, buzzards, coyotes, armadillos, anteaters, squirrels and Congo monkeys that populate the park.Hiking through system of limestone caverns, reef rocks constitute Barra Honda hill, of 300 meters tall. See the flora and fauna of this place, you can see coatis, agoutis, anteaters and monkeys.
