Going into a jungle at night will give you a chance to see the animals in a new environment. Many jungle creatures are only active at night and this is the only way to experience them. You will see mammals that never make appearances during day treks. Your guide will point out tarantulas and sleeping birds. The symphony of insects and frogs will be your soundtrack. The tour lasts two hours for 5:30pm to 7:30pm.
The Curi Cancha Park is a small environmentally conscious park. They limit their guest numbers to under 50 people a day to ensure that the wild life remains protected and beautiful for their guests. The park is home to trails you may explore on your own during the day. While wandering through the trees be sure to look out for the 200 species of bird who call this forest home. You may also come across armadillo, coati, agouti, kinkajou, ocelot, two-toed sloth and three different species of monkey.
The Curi-Cancha Reserve is located in Monteverde, Costa Rica. Created in 1997 from a plot of private land, this reserve extends across 237 acres (96 ha) and helps protect both primary and secondary forests. It’s also one of the area’s best birding sites.
