Las Quebradas Biological Center

Las Quebradas Biological Center Review

In a lush valley 7 km (4½ miles) northeast of San Isidro, the community-managed Las Quebradas Biological Center is a centro biológico (nature reserve) that protects 1,853 acres of dense forest in which elegant tree ferns grow in the shadows of massive trees, and colorful tanagers and euphonias flit about the foliage. A 3-km (2-mile) trail winds uphill through the forest and along the Río Quebradas, which supplies water to San Isidro and surrounding communities. There's also an easily accessible sensory garden, with plants to smell and taste, and a butterfly garden. To get here from the Pan-American Highway, head 7 km (4½ miles) northeast at the sign for Las Quebradas. The reserve is 2 km (1 mile) north of town on an unpaved road.
