VALLE ESCONDIDO PRESERVE
A uniquely different experience from other nature reserves in the area, Valle Escondido Preserve sits secluded on the edge of a pristine valley within a protected wildlife corridor that includes virgin forest, rivers and waterfalls.
Bird watching and other wildlife viewing can be enjoyed from the hiking trails or from any of the viewing platforms, which provide spectacular Pacific slope vistas all the way down to the Gulf of Nicoya. The Preserve protects endangered species such as the margay, olingo, bellbird, and quetzal.
After hiking the trails, wildlife viewing and gazing out at dreamy vistas, visitors can then enjoy a rest or a picnic in our secluded hammock garden.
In addition, the Preserve is conveniently the most centrally located park in the area, within walking distance or a short drive from down town Santa Elena. Take a look at our Preserve website here.
