The forests, meadows and marshes of the area provide refuge to several endangered species, such as pumas, jaguars, tapirs, ocelots, peccaries and various species of monkeys (Panamanian white-faced capuchin, howler and spider monkey of Geoffroy), as well Like many others. In the dry season, the river is reduced to small lagoons, canals and beaches that house thousands of migratory birds of many species, such as storks, spatulas, ibis, anhingas, ducks and cormorants.
- Tenorio Volcano National Park
The region protected by the Tenorio Volcano National Park is considered of great natural value. The site has large areas of virgin forest, since human intrusion has been relatively small. This has allowed the conservation of natural habitats vital for the preservation of endangered species, such as tepezcuintle, danta and puma.
On the slopes of the Tenorio volcano, numerous rivers and streams are born, the most important being the Chimurria river, of great hydrological value, and the Celeste river, of remarkable tourist value.
