Palo Verde Wetlands & Cultural Tour

Quick Details


A Complete Tour of El Viejo Wildlife Private Refuge

Enjoy the complete package, including a boat tour, lunch, and transportation to and from wherever you are in Guanacaste. Explore the flora and fauna of El Viejo Wildlife Private Refuge in their natural habitat and get to know the “Sabanero” culture and traditions, as sweet as the sugar cane — all in one hacienda.

Your tour begins with a delicious cup of coffee, fruits, and natural beverages in a mystic 150-year-old house. Explore El Viejo Wildlife National Refuge and its magnificent Tempisque River, bordering Palo Viejo National Park. Enjoy an incredible number of birds, howler monkeys, white face capuchin monkeys, crocodiles, and other species in their natural habitat.

This cultural tour envelops you in the sweetness of the sugar cane. Share in some of our most precious traditions, such as the ox-operated sugar mill (trapiche), handmade tortillas, aromatic fresh coffee, and some Guanacastecan appetizers made of corn. We invite you to meet some folks who are glad to tell you the real story of Costa Rican haciendas and the working families. An enjoyable occasion for everyone!
