About Us

Located less than one hour from the historic Caribbean town of Puerto Limón and with enchanting views of the endless mountains of the Talamanca Range, the Veragua Rainforest Eco-Adventure allows visitors to explore the natural wonders of Costa Rica’s breathtaking tropical rainforest.

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.

Sustainability Commitment

Veragua Rainforest shares the area with the three tiny communities of Brisas de Veragua de Limon, Union of the Peje River and Rio Blanco. It is a rural area of farms and small houses tucked into green rolling hills, where the population once subsisted solely on logging, agriculture, and working on cattle ranches.

For the past 11 years, Veragua Rainforest founders have worked with local communities to improve residents’ quality of life with new jobs and provide education in environmental conservation. During the two years of park construction, Veragua hired 140 men from the local area, many of whom stayed on working at the park in maintenance and grounds keeping.

Through the Veragua Foundation for Education & Rainforest Research, Veragua Rainforest helps the schoolchildren at the local Las Brisas de Veragua Elementary School and La Union de Rio Peje Elementary School with school supplies and school improvements and maintenance.
