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.


"This was another one of our favorite tours of the evening. Our tour guide was incredible too."

"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."
