Rainforest Experience Hike

Free Trip Planning

Build your perfect vacation!

  • The Hacienda Baru Biological Center encompasses over 815 acres of land including primary and secondary rainforest, lowlands, and mangrove estuary. During many years of research and hiking, hundreds of animals and birds have been seen as well as a large variety of trees and plants.

    The diverse terrain and wildlife that spans the property, creates excellent grounds for the Rainforest Experience Hike. Families, couples and groups of friends have thoroughly enjoyed this hike and have had lots of fun too.

    Your bilingual guide will meet you at the starting point and lead you through an active and informative hike, weaving throughout some of the most remote parts of the Hacienda. As a true Costa Rican naturalist, your guide will tell you interesting facts about the area and the flora and fauna that reside there including two types of monkeys, sloths, iguanas, a variety of birds and more. Feel free to bring along binoculars and a camera. You can also take a look into your guides spotting scopes to see the birds and animals up close.

    Costa Rica is the home to some of the most interesting iconic creatures known around the world but are rarely seen in many countries because of the particular ecosystems they need to thrive. The bulging red eyes of a green tree frog; the slow moving, seemingly-cuddly two-toed sloth, and the technicolored curved beak of a toucan are regularly seen on rainforest hikes like this one!

    This 3-4 hour hike involves moderate physical exercise, walking up and down maintained but hilly trails. During the rainy season the trails can get muddy so make sure to bring hiking boots or running shoes. Don’t forget your bug repellant, hat, and bottle of water. Transportation is not included.

    This half-day morning tour is recommended for those in good physical condition.
