Ecocentro Danaus Night Walk

Location: Arenal
Discover the creatures of the night on a night walk through a private reserve named Ecocentro Danaus, just minutes from La Fortuna. This wonderful reforestation project has attracted hundreds of species of wildlife and has become a great example of the regenerative power of the tropical forests.


"Even though we went while it was pouring, thundering and lightning, we still had a great time on the tour and saw sloths, a few kinds of frogs, and other cool creatures! It was a great night activity!"

"This was one of our favorite experiences. Our guide (whose name I cannot find) was excellent and very devoted to the refuge. We saw more animals here than anywhere else in Costa Rica -- butterflies, small mammals, birds at dusk, bats, reptiles of all sorts, including caymans, red eyed frogs, poison frogs, snakes, a three-toed sloth and much more. This was much better than advertised. This was a private tour for us. "

"Definite highlight - loved it. Excellent friendly guide. Low key location but excellent wildlife viewing."
