DESTINATIONS
3 GOOD REASONS
 ...to visit Carrasco
1) See if you can spot the blue-horned curassow recently "rediscovered" in this park.  
2) Put out an illegal fire - no one should be living here but the people aren't as rare as the rare blue-horned curassow. 
3) 600 fern species at least - more than Jurassic Park!

 Spreading across 6,226km² and ranging from 280 and 4,717 m.a.s.l. the Carrasco National Park, set up in October 1991, is home to 200 species of orchids and over 5000 plant species, 800 species of birds – many of which are in danger of becoming extinct, the Andean bear (Tremarctos ornatus), the taruca (Hippocamelus antisiensis), the jaguar (Panthera onca) and the titi (Felis jacobita). You need permission to enter but once in the wildlife sanctuary, the Repechon Caverns, the Incachaca ruins and other caves with bats and birdlife and the San Rafael and San Mateo hot springs are all there waiting to be experienced.

Once you are at Villa Tunari (bus or taxi from Cochabamba) simply ask how to get to the park.
