What to expect
Choose from a morning or afternoon departure, and travel from your La Fortuna hotel to the Ecocentro Danaus in a provided shuttle. This small nature reserve provides a great opportunity to observe Costa Rica's famous biodiversity in an intimate and eco-friendly way. When you arrive, set off on a easy circuit trail through the secondary rain forest that is regenerating thanks to the park’s conservation efforts. While walking through this protected ecosystem, learn about various habitats including a wetlands bird nesting grounds, a frog reproduction area, a medicinal plant grove, and a botanical garden featuring more than 600 different plant species. Catch sight of some 40 types of winged wonders in the butterfly garden, as well as larger animals like monkeys, sloths, turtles, caimans, and agoutis that make their home in the forest. You can also explore Costa Rica's indigenous culture with a visit to the on-site Maleku House, which offers insight into the daily lives of a northern region tribe. After completing the loop trail, browse for souvenirs at the gift shop and enjoy a snack of fresh fruit before the return trip to your La Fortuna hotel.

Totally Amazing and Worth It!
Feb 2019 • Couples
The place is small and beautiful. Our guide Sadalia was awesome. They picked us up at the hotel and we spent about 3 hours there. It was a clam, slow walk through this animal preserve. It was a nice combination of description of plant life and animals. We saw lots of birds, a bluejean frog, lizards, owl butterflies, caiman, and 4 sloths. She had her telescope and field guide to help us see and understand what we were looking at. There is no way we would have see the animals she pointed out- she had eagle eyes! She was extremely knowledgeable about the plants and animals. It was one of our vacation highlights. It is a preserve- so go there and support the people who are trying to protect the animals.

This was an easy but thoroughly enjoyable walk. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and friendly, and the grounds were beautiful and plentiful. We spent only a morning there but would go back for more if we had the time.
