El Chocoyero is a nature preserve that is home to thousands of different animals. Hire a guide, they will definitely enrich the experience. Our guide would spot birds or animals and even took great pictures of them when we may have missed them otherwise. Seeing...More

If you’re familiar with outdoor activities and outings in Central America, it will be no surprise to you that you have to take a dirt road with many ruts in it to get to this natural reserve. I was pleasantly surprised at how far down...More

A little difficult to get to, and if you miss a sign, you'll have some fun, but the people are friendly. There's some public transportation available, too, in a moto taxi. About 6 or 7 km outside of Ticuantepe, the is some kind of cooperative...More

Visited at the end of February and was privileged to see many local birds as well as migrants, but the highlight is seeing the chocoyos (green parakeets) come at dusk into their holes in the wall. We had to wait a long time to see...More

Perfect timing to see some birds, walk the small hike. El brujo waterfall is closed. Guides said morning was better to see more species of birds. Get there by tuktuk.
