Veragua Rainforest Eco-Adventure

Enjoy a day of discovery and adventure in the wondrous 3,400-acre Veragua Rainforest mountain reserve which National Geographic Traveler called “The Cream of the Cream of the Rainforest”. Surrounded by 100% rainforest, our private reserve borders the spectacular La Amistad International Park (“Friendship International Park”), the largest nature reserve in Central America.

A day at the Veragua Rainforest is the perfect way to experience firsthand as many of Costa Rica’s wonders as possible.

  • Glide through the rainforest treetops on an aerial tram (gondola) looking out for monkeys, sloths and colorful rainforest birds.  Visit the world-class Frog and Reptile Habitats-- and mingle with hundreds of butterflies at the Butterfly Garden, including the famous blue morpho!
  • Journey into the forest on diverse walking trails, admiring the sights and sounds of wild flora and fauna. Enjoy a walk to the riverbank or hike to a spectacular cascading waterfall, feeling the thunderous spray almost at your fingertips.
  • Or experience the most exhilarating canopy zip-line ride in the Caribbean-- the Original Canopy Tour--  as you glide silently through the Costa Rican rainforest on specially-built traverses and platforms, marveling at the commanding views from the treetops.
  • And don’t forget to visit The Foundation for Rainforest Research,where university researchers unlock nature’s mysteries and learn about exciting new species.  To date, eleven new rainforest species have been discovered at Veragua by our scientists!
