  • The Eco Centro Danaus is located 4 Km east of La Fortuna town. It is a private reserve that focuses its efforts on conservation and environmental education. It has gone from being a paddock area to a nature reserve, all the vegetation and diversity of animals is the result of more than 20 years of natural regeneration and a good ecological balance. It has a footpath with gravel of approximately 600 meters long in which you will see local and migratory birds.

    Eco Centro Danaus offers visitors the possibility to visit by day or by night. During the day visitors are free to take a self-guided tour through the premises. The well-marked trails provide a great opportunity for bird watching, and spotting animals, as the forest is inhabited three-toed sloths, coatis and more than 150 avian species. Along the way you can enjoy the lush vegetation and colorful flowers, while after the tour you can visit the herbal garden, butterfly sanctuary, and the ranarium, which houses poison frogs.

    This is a great tour for families, seniors, and people interested in learning about wildlife and plants. Although this tour is not physically taxing it is on gravel trail which could be difficult for anyone in a wheelchair or difficulty walking on uneven surfaces. The duration of the tour is about 1.5 hours. There is also a guided night tour that includes a walk through the forest with an experience naturalist guide who possesses an extensive knowledge of natural history.
