The Bajo del Tigre sector is physically separated from the Children's Eternal Rain Forest and is managed by the MCL. Bajo del Tigre is situated in Monteverde and is approximately 29 hectares in size, although the property is surrounded by other forested properties in the zone. The type of forest found in Bajo del Tigre is rare and it is poorly represented in the country. This is because these forests were cut down to make way for coffee plantations and urban zones. Bajo del Tigre presents an altitudinal range from 1,020 to 1,380 meters above sea level and receives over 2,400 mm of rain annually. In this type of seasonal forest, the dry period extends from January through the beginning of May. Bajo del Tigre has a reception center for visitors and a gift shop with items related to our organization and conservation in general. In addition, next to the reception center is a "kids' house" oriented to environmental education for local kids. The main visitors of Bajo del Tigre are national and international students. However, it is being used more and more by ecotourists and occasionally by researchers. In Bajo del Tigre, there are about 4.4 Km of trails that allow you to enjoy the unique flora and fauna of the area, as well as an excellent view of the sunset over the Nicoya Gulf.

My husband and I came up yesterday morning and spent hours hiking through the very well marked and maintained trails. The sights were gorgeous! The Rain Forest was completely alive and filled with lovely bird sounds. We swam in the lake. Lunch was great as well! We live nearby and will come up as often as we can! We are... More

Bajo del Tigre is part of the Children's Eternal Rainforest, Central America's largest private nature reserve with over 40,000 protected hectares. Bajo is a nearby portion of the Children's Eternal Rainforest and can be accessed from the main Monteverde road. I saw beautiful flowers, the Three-Wattled Bellbird, a Motmot, and an armadillo at Bajo. If you also visit the Monteverde... More

I walked the trail mid afternoon. The fee is $12 payable at reception. They also have a selection of items for sale including reasonably priced kid's t-shirts. It takes about 1.5 hours to do the trails which include some shorter ones that are marked out for ninios. I saw several agoutis and butterflies. Probably would have seen more creatures if... More

We visited the Children' s Eternal Rainforest for a night tour on March 11th. We chose to visit this park since we wanted to contribute to the cause. Unfortunately, we only saw a few birds sleeping and one tarantula. It was kind of fun, though, to go through the woods at night with flashlights. I think I would like to... More

We chose to do the night walk to end our Monteverde tour. The guide was very relaxed and did not seemed concerned about staying on time which was nice because he let us watch the sunset (which we were not able to do yet). We then proceeded to talk about the forest and how it came to become protected which... More

We opted to do the night walk through the Children's Eternal Rain forest. When I was in junior high we raised money to buy a hectare of rain forest in Costa Rica and I would like to think that it was here that we did it (I don't remember now!). What a beautiful area. We watched the sun set and... More

We did a night walk here. This night walk was definitely okay: we saw some nice animals. Of course, it's nature and you never know what to expect. However, our guide started of with a half an hour long story on the existence of the park (while this is definitely interesting, it is not what we came for). Also, he... More

A great place to see wildlife. Our guide was amazing (Marcos from Pasion Costa Rica) and explained us that the money paid was used for conservation and education purposes. We did a day hike and saw many interesting birds, flowers, butterflies and animal there. A must do in Monteverde.
