La Danta Salvaje
Lonely Planet review
West of Guápiles, a 45-minute 4WD trip and three-hour hike will take you 800m above sea level to this 410-hectare rainforest reserve in a critical buffer zone adjacent to Parque Nacional Braulio Carrillo. The rustic lodge hosts small groups for four days of hiking in the jungle, splashing around in swimming holes and spotting spider monkeys, tapirs and silky anteaters. Prices include three meals a day and guided hikes. Reservations must be made in advance.
