    Day 1Day Tour (4 Hours)

    Our main tour departs from Arenal at 5:30am to arrive at the Monkey Lodge Biological Reserve around 6:00am where we will begin the tour of a grassland area with a small stream surrounded by trees that allow the observation of both birds typical of open places such as birds from more aquatic and forested habitats as well as turtles, reptiles and small mammals that frequent the area.

    After this simple walk of one hour we go to the ranch of the farm where you can be part of the preparation of the traditional Costa Rican breakfast that we will then taste. Preparing the gallo pinto, patting the tortillas or dripping the coffee are just some of the things you can participate in, in this experience full of culture and good flavor.

    Then we enter the mythical centennial trees trail to begin a journey of approximately 3 kilometers surrounded by a wide variety of plants, birds, insects and huge trees with sizes that reach up to approximately 30 meters in height and with estimated ages from 100 up to 500 years. A unique secondary forest in the Arenal area.

    Once this walk full of history and impressive trees is finished, we will start our way back to your hotel.

    Among the most common birds in this place are the Montezuma Oropendola (Psarocolius Montezuma), which nests in large numbers at the entrance to the trail; the Great Kiskadee (Pitangus Sulphuratus), the Little Yellow Tyrannulet (Capsiempis Flaveola), the Variable Seedeater (Sporophila Americana), the Tropical Kingbird (Tyrannus Melancholicus), the Red-billed Pigeon (Patagioenas Flavirostris), and the Groove-billed ani (Crotophaga).

    The Laughing Falcon (Herpetotheres Cachinnans) is a medium-sized hawk whose presence is an indicator of a healthy environment, this because its diet depends on snakes, which in turn feed on frogs, rodents, lizards, snakes and even other birds. On this tour it is also possible to see Black-cheeked Woodpecker (Melanerpes Pucherani) and Guianan Trogon (Trogon Violaceus).

    Among the birds of aquatic habits that are more difficult to observe, but that are also present, are the Uniform crake (Amaurolimnas Concolor) and the White-throated Crake (Laterallus Albigularis). In addition to these birds, commonly known howler monkeys, white-faced monkeys and some coatis can be observed.
