Birdwatching Costa Rica & ecotourism in a place for costa rica ecotourism, focussed in birding costa rica
Hacienda Baru is an excellent destination for Costa Rica Ecotourism, Bird Watching and Wildlife Observation. The Ecolodge is surrounded by Hacienda Baru National Wildlife Refuge which conserves 330 hectares (815 acres) of tropical rainforest, mangrove, wetlands, river bank, and beach front. This wide variety of ecosystems means a high level of biodiversity, and that is why Bird Watchers have sighted over 350 species on the refuge. The six rustic cabins are nice and comfortable. The six pool view rooms give you the option of a touch of luxury. The swimming pool is disinfected with ozone rather than chlorine, so the water won't burn your eyes and won't contaminate the environment. The open air restaurant serves delicious typical Costa Rican dishes at popular prices. Within the gardens surrounding the lodge you will find a butterfly garden, an orchid garden and a bird watching tower. Seven kilometers of nature trails begin at the lodge and traverse the Hacienda Baru National Wildlife Refuge. Nine ecological tours are available including rainforest canopy tours, hiking tours, overnight tours and bird watching tours. Hacienda Baru has been catering to Ecotourism and Birding in Costa Rica for 22 years.
