Bogarin Trail Nature Walk

Situated in the middle of La Fortuna you don't have to venture outside of the city to get your nature fix on this Costa Rican adventure. The lovely Bogarin Trail is an urban park where you can see all kinds of colorful wildlife with ease.

If you planned to spend your day wandering around La Fortuna, Costa Rica but feel bad about not spending the day outdoors in nature, then fret no more! Grab your favorite outdoor shoes, because this adventure is going to give new meaning to the term 'urban jungle.' La Fortuna's Bogarin Trail is a little piece of mother nature within the city center.

Named for Giovanni Bogarin, Arenal Observatory Lodge's trail designer and first resident nature guide, this urban oasis boasts nearly 1 1/4 miles (2 km) of in-town wilderness. You'll be able to see some of the same animals found on more rugged treks, such as:

  • Boat billed herons
  • Parrots
  • Toucans
  • Sloths
  • Alligators
  • Poison dart frogs
  • Snakes

and more. The best part? You can take advantage of this city excursion any time of day — morning, afternoon, or evening. That means you can have an adventure before or after breakfast, walk off a full lunch, or work up an appetite before dinner.

Morning Tour - Take part in the 6 a.m. tour to indulge in a little early morning birdwatching when the city is still quiet, or enjoy the 9 a.m. tour after you've had your early morning coffee.

Afternoon Tour - Get a second chance to see Costa Rica's colorful tropical birds (and other wildlife) when they come out to feed next to the park's reception area. This tour starts at 3:00 p.m.

Night Hike - Beginning at 18 p.m. (6 p.m.), this version of the tour lets you see the creatures too shy to make an appearance during the day, including: Bats, fireflies, spiders, snakes, frogs, and more.
