Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

What you will visit:

San Luis Park:
Nestled within the Central Valley, San Luis is a cloud forest of intense natural beauty. All cloud forests are unique but are characterized by their extremely high humidity, receiving precipitation from the atmospheric clouds and mist. This abundance of moisture creates an incredible biodiversity, and visitors can explore this lush ecosystem on guided nature walks as well as on a series of suspension bridges which cover more than a half mile of the cloud forest. Each bridge spans between 95 and 253 feet and is 126 feet above the ground. As you traverse the area, you'll be entertained by tweeting birds as you pass an abundance of indigenous flora and fauna.

Hummingbird Garden:
Within the San Luis Park, discover the hummingbird garden, an open area where these tiny, colorful birds flit about gathering sweet nectar from blooming flowers. Watch their spectacular acrobatic aerial maneuvers and learn more about the 14 different species of birds.

Butterfly Farm:
A giant, enclosed arena is home to over 50 species of these winged beauties, such as the monarch, blue morpho and Caligo, just a few of the amazing butterflies that can be observed. Guides offer detailed information of the life cycle, behaviors and evolution of these special creatures.

What you will see along the way:

Lunch:
Sip a delicious "agua dulce" (a traditional drink) with a typical Costa Rican lunch.

Shopping:

A brief stop at El Jardín will allow you to enjoy the scenery at the beautiful gardens and browse its well-stocked souvenir shop.
