VALLE ESCONDIDO PRESERVE
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 WILDLIFE
Bird watching and other wildlife viewings can be enjoyed from the hiking trails or from any of the viewing platforms, which provide spectacular Pacific Ocean views all the way down to the Gulf of Nicoya. The Preserve protects endangered species such as the margay, olingo, bellbird, quetzal, and puma.
HIKE AND RECHARGE!
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 downtown Santa Elena.
Visitors can explore the trails at their own leisure, or book a professionally guided birdwatching or flora & fauna Tour. The daily night tour is also not to be missed!
