Great birdwatching experience

The spot selected to do the tour is very good because it has great visibility and different landscapes, so you can watch from small hummingbirds to tucans without walking long distances. Our guide Roiner is experienced and helped us to locate many different birds and distinguish them by their singing. He also carried a very good telescope which helped us to appreciate with more detail many of the birds we saw. It is a highly recommended tour for the people who like birdwatching.

Great night walk on the grounds of El Bosque

The night walk was through the extensive trails on the grounds of Hotel El Bosque. Our guide was knowledgable and excellent at spotting many animals. A night hike was an important part of our trip to Costa Rica as the animals that are active at night are very different. We would highly recommend this activity.

Night Walk

This was an nice way to spend the evening. Our guide, Dio, was very knowledgeable about the flora and fauna of the area, and this particular tour was very private- 4 of us in total and we didn’t see any other groups the entire time.

Amazing Night Walk

Great night walk through the forest. Small group, personal tour. Spotted many birds, tarantula, and mammals without disrupting them. 10/10 would go again!

El Bosque is a small forest set aside for conservation.

It is part of the Biological Corridor Pajaro Campana, which is extremely important for the survival of many highly endangered species such as the Resplendent Quetzal, the Three-Wattled Bellbird and many other creatures that come here for food supply when the wild avocados are no longer found in the Monteverde Cloud Forest Biological Reserve.

El Bosque Trails & Eco-lodge nestled in this forest, tucked away from crowds and multitudes and completely surrounded by nature. There is a small eco-lodge, gardens, trails, and tours onsite open to the public (including lodge guests and outside visitors as well).
