Welcome to Bijagua


Bijagua is a leader in rural community tourism. It all started with the Heliconias Rainforest Lodge, managed by a cooperative of local families. That spirit continues in small-scale tours that mimic – on a more charming level – the night tours and chocolate tours of more established tourism centers.

Now the 'graduates' of Heliconias have founded their own businesses, and a growing entrepreneurial spirit along with a genuine down-to-earth Tico vibe make this a wonderful place to base yourself while visiting the nearby hotspots of Tenorio, Palo Verde, and even La Fortuna (the big one).
