This small ecological reserve, which regenerated naturally, thanks to the efforts of a group of people concerned about conservation of our environment and education of the children and adults of the area, is a wonderful project which has cooperated with the sustainable tourism development of La Fortuna town.
The tour includes a circuit trail which is apt for all types of people, through the regenerating secondary rainforest. Here we will find a Botanical Garden with hundreds of species of plants, a butterfly garden with more than 40 species, different areas destined to natural frog reproduction, exhibition of medicinal plants, wetland which has been declared of national importance for bird nesting and observation, and the Maleku House, representative of an indigenous tribe from the Northern Region, which allows us to learn a little about the indigenous cultures of Costa Rica.
In addition to these highlights, the entire trail offers excellent opportunities to view the regenerating wildlife; frogs, snakes, turtles,caimans, monkeys, sloths, reptiles, agoutis and birds are usually seen around the area. At the end of our tour we will have a short visit to the Eco Center souvenir shop and enjoy a delicious snack of fresh fruit.
