VALLE ESCONDIDO NIGHT TOUR
As sunset falls, the jungle, and its creatures of the night awaken! Learn about nocturnal wildlife and experience the magic of walking in the jungle at night with a nationally certified guide.
Starting 20 years ago, Valle Escondido Preserve Night Walk was one of the first in Costa Rica. Groups are always kept small to provide the most intimate experience possible and to not disrupt the habitat of the animals on the preserve. Tour includes transportation, guide and flashlights.
To book you can call us directly or send us a message at the bottom of the page.
The tour starts at 5.30pm, but if you arrive at 5pm you can enjoy some complimentary popcorn and watch the sunset from the reception garden over our stunning vista of the Pacific and Nicoya gulf.
Once the tour ends you'll finish back up by our atmospheric open-air restaurant where guests often like to enjoy a delicious dinner or drinks to complete the evening.
5.30pm - 7.30pm
Don't forget your complimentary popcorn!
Hides during the day in bromeliads, but emerges at dusk. Usually seen at night, perched at low vegetation. Male produces a chuckling harsh trill.
May be active in day or night; eats invertebrates, fruit and carrion. Is a good swimmer; crosses streams by gulping air and floating across. Female gives birth to genetically identical quadruplets, which are susceptible to human diseases.
Migrates from October to April. Usually on or near ground in mature wet forest, or advanced second growth, but also forages on trails at dawn and dusk. When alarmed utters a quick 'pik pik.'
