Rancho Naturalista


The premier birding lodge in Costa Rica, Rancho Naturalista is among the finest in Central America. There are plentiful hummingbirds on the large, open upstairs balcony where you can view the distant smoking volcano. Over 450 species of birds have been recorded in our private forest reserve and within the local area. You can hike and bird the trails on your own and excellent guides are available. They will maximize your birding experience and can guide the beginning birdwatcher as well as the experienced birder. At Rancho Naturalista the atmosphere is warm and relaxed, and the staff are friendly and welcoming.
