Fodor's Review

You'll find excellent bird-watching and hiking in this nature preserve, uphill from the Costanera. Family run, this property has well-groomed trails through a majestic, primary forest reserve. Early-morning, three-hour birding tours ($30) end with a hearty home-cooked breakfast. There are also three- to four-hour morning hiking tours to a waterfall, including lunch ($35). A new night tour with a naturalist guide is $30 per person.
