Rancho Naturalista

Rancho Naturalista is designed to accommodate ambitious birdwatchers. On the property that surrounds the lodge it’s possible to see over 450 species of bird in their natural habitat, including an incredible variety of hummingbirds.

Many of the species that live in Cordillera Talamanca are incredibly rare and are almost never spotted outside of Costa Rica. Rancho Naturalista’s balcony has several hummingbird feeders. There are several excellent birdwatching areas just a short distance from the resort, where you can look for sunbitterns and a tanagers. Visit the Centro Agronómico Tropical de Investigación y Enseñanza (CATIE) to see aquatic birds like green ibises and purple gallinules. For experienced adventurers, there are some more extreme forms of entertainment nearby — this are has good canyoning and white rafting on the Pacuare River, which features Class III and Class IV rapids.

The main lodge has several rooms that share a balcony and a communal living area with Wi-Fi. Guests can also choose to stay in small cabins near the main lodge, or book a room in the rustic "casita" that has its own living room and kitchen. Most of the rooms provide excellent views for bird watching. All of the accommodations have daily maid service, and there’s a laundry service available.

Meals are included in your stay, and Rancho Naturalista’s cooks prepare a wide variety of Costa Rican and international options. They’re served family style, with generous platters on each dining table. Every meal is made with local ingredients and comes with fresh fruit juice.
