Isla Pajaros, Costa Rica

Pajaros Island is located in the Gulf of Nicoya, Costa Rica. It is one of four unpopulated islands included in the national park system as a biological reserve to protect seabird-nesting colonies and spare it from tourism or other development. There are no facilities for visitors or walking trails on the island.

Pajaros Island is almost completely round and dome-shaped. It's composed of the same kind of sandstone and luttie as Guayabo Island. The vegetation consists of a low-growing forest and patches of second-growth grass. The predominant species are guava, crown fig and stinking toe. Resident animals include rock oysters, crustaceans like barnacles, and birds outcast from other groups.
