If you love birds then this is definitely a place to visit in Costa Rica. The owners are very knowledgeable about the local avian fauna, and their well stocked feeders attract a wide variety of species. The grounds are beautifully landscaped, and the cabin we stayed in was

We only visited for a few hours to walk the grounds and do some hiking. The feeders were hopping with lots of birds and a couple of monkeys at 6am. There is a $5pp charge for 3 hours of walking and hiking.

So, the dogs are allowed to roam freely in the garden? Regards schliek
Yes. We have 22 hectares of land with no neighbours. There is no reason to confine them. They are friendly and love people.

It may be a problem for you because we do not confine our dogs and unfortunately it is too much trouble for us to do that when we are busy with guests. It would mean either tying them up or putting them in the house and worrying about them escaping. We are very sorry about that. Many hotels have dogs in Costa Rica. They serve a purpose of alerting us of intruders. Best Regards.
