Wildlife of Caño Negro Wildlife Refuge

Set near the Nicaraguan border in a marshy, jungle-like area, the Caño Negro Wildlife Refuge is one of the most difficult places to visit in Costa Rica. It is set in a remote area of the country and is often submerged in water from flooded rivers. We visited the area during the dry season, making it easier for us to explore the area (with a tour guide, of course). Take a look at a small sample of what we saw there:

Howler Monkeys

Basilisk Lizard (or commonly known as Jesus Christ lizard for its ability to walk on water)

And so much more...

In the dry season the area is reduced to lagoons, channels and beaches which gives home to thousands of migratory birds of many species. See further proof here
