We were lucky to get to spend time at @ladantasalvaje Costa Rican rainforest reserve owned by an incredible human, David. Him and his team, all who are passionate about preserving the rainforest and all the nature in it, really made this a memorable experience we would do again for sure! José our guide, was extremely knowledgeable and soooo good! We are lucky to have gotten the opportunity to do this trip! A two plus hour hike in with all our stuff just to get to the lodge...remote and absolutely breathtaking! Three days of hiking across three different eco zones and 4 nights of music, food over flame, no electricity, no social media and awesome company. The hikes were extreme. Super challenging but so amazingly beautiful and absolutely rewarding! Waterfalls, swimming holes, surrounded by the most beautiful nature, hummingbirds, coatis, tapirs(we seen hoof prints), tons of different bird species, butterflies,flora and fauna...Authentic and rugged, I’d highly recommend this for some real “me” time and disconnecting from day to day life and reconnecting to nature.

We booked this excusion on our last trip to Costa rica. We stayed in La Danta Salvaje from jan. 16th to jan. 19th 2018. This excursion was the highlight of our 2 week trip, BY FAR! We have been on numerous rainforest excursions in Monteverde, Drake Bay... but this 3 night stay in the jungle was the most memorable ever. If you are looking for an authentic experience that you won't get anywhere else, this is it! Walking through the jungle, in the mud and rain was just incredible! Everything was perfect, especially the food! In fact, it was the best we had on our entire 2 week trip in Costa Rica! David's beef jerky is literally out of this world!!!! Thank you David for this great excursion. And a special thanks to José, our guide, for the awesome hiking experience. Pura Vida!

This was the highlight of our trip to Costa Rica! This was such a unique and special way to experience and learn about the Costa Rica wildlife. Our guide Jose was incredibly knowledgeable on just about everything, the food was delicious, and the general atmosphere of the group (hikers, guides, and workers) resembled that of a family. Seeing Toucans and swimming in waterfalls was an added bonus to the general beauty of the rainforest! I would recommend this trip to anyone who is interested in disconnecting for a few days and wants to totally immerse themselves in the rainforest! The hiking is moderate to strenuous depending on your ability, however, there are many breaks that make it all very enjoyable. would recommend bringing a waterproof camera if possible (you never know when it will rain!)

La Danta Salvaje is a really beautiful reserve with so much to explore. Our guide, José knew the reserve inside out. He had so much knowledge and facts about the flora and fauna and made us feel safe in a pretty new and unfamiliar environment. The hikes that we did during the days would require medium physical form in our opinion. We did the hikes in a nice and slow pace and we had lots of time for breaks and swimmimg in the waterfall- pools that we visited. The cabin has an breathtaking view and with enough facilities for us to feel comfortable. In addition, the local food wich David and his crew made from scratch over the fire was the best we had during our stay in Costa Rica! The evenings were also super cozy and social with hot chocolate and card games 😊 Highly recommended!

Myself and my partner Vicky spent three nights and four wonderful days with David and his team. We experienced what can only be described as magical. The hospitality was more than you could imagine, vegetarians catered for, as well as full on meat eaters, the home made beef jerky was wonderful. We experienced The Rainforest first hand, our guide Josés' knowledge, was second to none as he grew up in the area and still lives nearby. Some off the terrain covered is not for the unfit or weak willed, and you will come across wildlife as you are in a Primary Rainforest. If you don't like being hot, wet, muddy or being close to wildlife this is not for you, for me and Vicky a life time ambition has been realised. Thank you David and Team we have memories and pictures we will treasure forever.
