Know More About La Tirimbina Biological Reserve:

Tirimbina Rainforest Center is a national wildlife refuge operated as an education, research, and eco-tourism center. It was founded by a private foundation in Milwaukee (yes the one in Wisconsin) but is now owned and operated by its own foundation.

Trails right outside the rooms lead to a puente colgante (suspension bridge) over the Sarapiquí River and into wonderland. The river can be vicious in the rainy season and act as a natural barrier to farming, ranching, and development. It protected the rainforest until a modern NGO took over and on the other side, you’ll find Costa Rica nature at its best.

The birdwatching is fantastic (use that cash you saved to get a guide) and the trails through one of the last stands of mid-elevation, premontane rainforest in northeastern Costa Rica are well maintained including additional canopy segments on bridges up the slope from the long bridge across the river.

Besides the general guided walk and more specialized birdwatching tour which are both excellent Tirimbina offer two tours that really stand out.

The foundation that established the biological reserve decided that it wasn’t only important to protect the amazing primary rainforests but also the traditional agriculture that was encroaching on nature when they purchased the land.

They maintain a few hectares of cocoa plantation and offer the best chocolate tour we’ve found in Costa Rica. Focusing on the traditional methods of taking the bitter seeds from the pods to a finished product they reveal the magic of chocolate.
