Welcome to Boca Tapada Area
Here’s an off-the-beaten-track destination for adventurous souls. The rocky roads and lack of signage (even less than usual) could mean a few unintended detours, but it’s worth the effort for a glimpse into an ecological extravaganza. On the roads that pass pineapple fields and packing plants, your fellow travelers will be commuting campesinos (agricultural workers) going about their day-to-day business. And at the end of the road, you’ll be rewarded with a luxuriant bit of rainforest replete with the songs of frogs and rare birds, and an inkling of the symbiosis that can happen when humans make the effort. Local lodges offer tours into the Refugio Nacional de Vida Silvestre Mixto Maquenque.
