Loved hiking here both during the day to see a Bellbird and at night where we saw and heard a variety of wildlife. The Children's Eternal Rain Forest is one of my favorite conservation stories...

The most beautiful national park I saw in Costa Rica. It's very pristine and original with countless beautiful plants and animals to see. It is fortunately also hardly visited by people, which I really enjoyed as you were even better able to look for birds and other animals. We started at he Pocosol station, which was a bit tricky to reach due to the road conditions but it was definitely worth it. You will be able to see a very huge waterfall, places of volcanic activity, a beautiful lake and much more.
We had a fantastic time at Bosque Eterno de Los Ninos! A great spot for birders: we saw Keel Billed Toucans, Long Tailed Manakins, and Three Wattled Bell Birds among others. The wonderful person at the front desk, Sol, gave us a great explanation of the trails, lookout points, places to look for wildlife, and the history of the conservation of the forest. She was super friendly and made us feel very welcome! The trails felt mostly intermediate/easy, but the Jaguar trail was pretty intense with switchbacks and steep inclines. We worked up a sweat and had an awesome time 🙂
Amazing undisturbed research station in the childrens eternal rainforest We were helped by an extremely polite person at the station. To find our our way around. We saw a hotspring. Thanks to another post we took the northern route as suggested and it was fine. 4x4 needed.
El Burrito hike. Mau was our guide. Very good hike and you meet a local farmer who lives on the hillside at the end for fruit and coffee. Great experience.
Great secluded hike deep in the rainforest. The drive to get there is rough and as of 07/2019 Google Maps takes you the wrong way. There should be new yellow signs every couple KM on the road. 4x4 recommended. Waterfall view at the end of the hike is great
