Full description
After pickup in your hotel zone in La Fortuna, head to Ecocentro Danaus, a private ecological reserve where programs for conservation, training, environmental education, and sustainable production are developed. This small ecological reserve regenerated naturally thanks to the efforts of a group of people concerned about environmental conversation and education for children and adults. This wonderful project has greatly contributed to the sustainable tourism development of La Fortuna. Take a circuit path through a secondary forest in regeneration. The trail is suitable for anyone. Along the way, discover a botanical garden with more than 600 species of plants, a butterfly garden with more than 40 species, areas designated to the natural reproduction of frogs, medicinal plant gardens, and a wetland declared as a site of national importance for the nesting and observation of aquatic birds. In addition to these sites, the entire trail provides excellent observation points to see wildlife in rejuvenation; frogs, butterflies, snakes, turtles, alligators, sloths, basilisk lizards, agoutis, and birds are normally seen in this place. End the tour with a quick visit to the Eco Center souvenir shop where you will have a delicious snack of fresh fruit.
