Caño Negro Wildlife Refuge

Caño Negro Wildlife Refuge is one of the richest sites for birding in Costa Rica. Besides abundant birds, Caño Negro is a wildlife lover’s paradise, where you can see three species of monkeys, sloths, caimans, turtles, bats, and many other animals. Located in the very north of Costa Rica, Caño Negro is a showcase of native wetland vegetation. The full-day tour to this beautiful region leaves La Fortuna at 7:30 a.m., traveling a little over an hour to Los Chiles, a rustic village three kilometers from the Nicaraguan border. This is where the tour of the Caño Negro Wildlife Refuge wetlands begins. This tour is highly recommended for nature and wildlife viewing.
