  • This reserve is part of the Area de Conservación Tempisque and is located in San Ramón de Bagaces, north of Liberia city in the province of Guanacaste. The Reserva Biológica Barbudal is known as the Insect Park, due to its immense variety of insects that can be found; more than 240 species of bees and 60 species of moths have been classified in the vicinity of the park. It protects a dry tropical forest, rich in insect species, particularly bees, wasps and diurnal and nocturnal butterflies. It is estimated that there are about 250 species of bees and 60 of moths at night. Another feature that makes Lomas Barbudal a very important wildness area, is the presence even during the summer of abundant water sources, such as the Cabuyo River, numerous streams and natural springs. As a deciduous forest populated by tons of rare trees Lomas de Barbudal is the best hope for many endangered arborous species. Among striking classic varieties, visitors will also spot uncommon kinds such as the Cocobolo, the Pochote, and the ron-ron, a flowering tree that can reach heights of more than 35 meters when fully grown. Probably the greatest standout in this forest is the Corteza Amarilla, a tree famous for its short-lived yet breathtaking clusters of electric yellow blossoms. Taking one of the park´s many hiking trails gives you the perfect chance to take in its wildlife. While you´re there, you should visit its research station, which houses a plethora of facts about the species you´ll see. This museum and information center, housed in the Casa Patrimonio at the park´s entrance, is a great place to start your journey through the reserve.
