Private El Viejo Complete Package

Hacienda El Viejo Wetlands

Quick Details


Private Tour of El Viejo Wildlife Private Refuge

Enjoy 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. This complete private package includes transportation to and from where you are in Guanacaste.

We start with a delicious cup of coffee, fruits, and natural beverages in a mystical house that’s almost 150 years old. Explore El Viejo Wildlife National Refuge and its magnificent Tempisque River, which border Palo Viejo National Park. Enjoy an incredible number of birds, howler monkeys, and white-faced capuchin monkeys, as well as crocodiles and other species, in their natural habitat.

This cultural tour envelops you in the sweetness of the sugar cane. How about sharing 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!
