This is a private reserve that has an area of ​​1,300 hectares of land immersed in a tropical rainforest of great beauty. It has a biological station of the INBIO, for the conservation and the scientific study of the species of this tropical forest, as well as first facilities for its visitors. It also has a butterfly, a frog and a snake with the most diverse species of our country. For the more adventurous, it has an Aerial Tram that leads us on the treetops in a descent of more than 400 meters until some trails that took us to the river bank and the cataract.

We left as always on the west side of the National Park, we take the road to Limón up to the height of Liverpool, where after 9 km on ballast we arrive at this beautiful place. After organizing in groups, we went out to walk the nearest trails and to know the facilities, so that after lunch we devote ourselves to bird watching.

At night, with Steven, the guide who provided the Reserve, we were looking for owls and saw a Ciccaba negrolineata. On another path we saw two owls and some hammocks playing on the branches of the trees. Some companions saw the Potoo Nyctibius griseus, with a brood on a broken branch of a guarumo, and were even able to record their songs.

On Sunday morning, the main attraction was again the Parasol Bird, a Trogon massena, the climber Xiphorhynchus lachrymosus, and many other sightings.

On the way back to San Jose, we stopped at the Canopy Brisas de Veragua that is left before taking the road from Limón to San José. This also has some trails in the middle of centennial ceibos and beautiful gardens all very well preserved where we enjoy a lek of Querula purpurata, and at about 3:30 pm we leave for San José.
