Activities on our farm


Just take a walk through the garden and watch. There is a lot to discover without paying anything!

 

1. Poison dart frogs and more – medium

Oophaga granulifera

We lead you to a rare species of poison dart frog, also known as arrow-blowing frogs, Oophaga granulifera (red-green tree-frog), which appears only in this area on some remote and unspoilt rivers. There are plenty of other beautiful and cryptic frog species to be discovered on this trip as well. The path leads through the river bed, past plants only growing in the jungle. Perhaps you will see bulrushes or spiders, three-finger sloths, wild boars, raccoons, iguanas, and various other reptiles, such as snakes, mikas and palmvipers. There is also a chance to see bats in their sleeping places or even nutrias swimming in the creeks, scarlet macaws, other parrot species, mot mots, tigerheron and guans, the many different and colorful songbirds that can be seen and heard everywhere. Or, if you are lucky, you can find a rare dwarf anteater, Cyclopes didactylus

Agalychnis callidryas

To discover the endangered and rare species Phyllobates vittatus, or Dendrobates auratus as well as Craugastor stejnegerianus, you should be in good physical condition. The hike is challenging and exhausting, the terrain mountainous and muddy. But only this tour takes you so close to many unique and exciting experiences. Perhaps you see squirell or capuzin monkeys, two-finger sloths, agoutis, peccaries, anteaters, crocodiles, and various other reptiles, such as snakes like buschmaster and loras. In addition skunks and belt animals, scarlet macaws and trogones, various herons and large curassow or morphofalter, “hopping” through the jungle. Or you can find traces of wildcats and tapirs…
