5- Days Eco- Tour North Costa Rica
This is a very special and individual Tour
You will see the real Costa Rica
Die „Agro-ecological Youth Organization of the Northern Zone of Costa Rica (JAZON)“ is working for the benefit of rural people for 14 years and is a no commercial organization. Although the term of “Eco- Tourism” is a little abused, here you will live and see the real Costa Rica and come to rural zones, usual tourists never reach.
We support this great project and help to prepare individual packages or combinations with other destinations. This Mini- roundtrip is only one possible way to travel. We can offer it in any combination with our other roundtrips.
Tag 1: Sarapiquí – Chilamate Rainforest Eco Retreat
Transfer from our Posada to Sarapiquí.
Lake Jalapa: A lot of fresh air, peace and silence, where the only sounds are from nature.
The “Tapiria Wildlife Refuge” and the “Lake Jalapa” are two magical places where you and your family can enjoy very close contact to nature. Both attractions are located in the “Rojomaca Settlement”, nine miles west from Puerto Viejo de Sarapiquí.
The tour consists in a hike on the recreational trails up to the quay and in crossing the “Lake Jalapa” by boat in about two hours. Here you will enjoy a great variety of birds and feel the peace and silence.
In the end of the boat ride, we will get back to the jungle for another 45 minutes to walk to the Restaurant, where a delicious typical Costa Rican lunch is waiting, prepared with the products that the members of the community harvested in their fields.
As well you have the possibility to enter the Chilamate Rainforest Eco Retreat with a 90 minutes’ hike, where you will see a great number of animals like monkeys, armadillos, pacas, amphibians and a lot of variety of birds.
