Owner description: 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.

“Best Place for Wildlife”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

I specifically went to Bajo del Tigre, and I regularly saw double the wildlife as I did within any of the reserves. Because of the age of the forest to the trees are frequently shorter bringing them closer than you might otherwise see them. It has been remodeled to be an absolutely amazing experience, by far the best nature experience to be had!

“Well worth the hike!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

The hike down into the Children's Eternal Rainforest was absolutely enchanting! The spider monkeys were quite entertaining, as well as the ever-changing views. But my favorite thing was the air. You can breathe so deeply and feel so refreshed.
