Welcome to the newly created rainforest! Want to spend the night in the middle of the rainforest in a very special way?
In la Tigra, bungalows built on stilts await you with private bathrooms, walls made of sturdy canvas and your own balcony with tree house feeling.
Around noon you will arrive at la Tigra Rainforest Lodge and enjoy your traditional lunch. Optionally we will take care of your transfer to the lodge, if you are not traveling in a rental car. A four-wheel drive vehicle is recommended, but not a requirement. If you arrive in the evening, we can postpone lunch until tomorrow.
The lodge was opened in 2014, but trees have been planted on site since 2004. You can see how the former cow pasture has changed. After check in you can explore the trails of the lodge on your own, relax in the pool or even your private hammock with the best rainforest view. In the late afternoon you will have a local coffee and around 7pm the tasty dinner at the restaurant "Canta Rana". After dinner we continue with the small night walk around 8pm. Around the restaurant you can hear the frogs singing, as the name suggests, and surely poison dart frogs, red-eyed tree frogs and toads can be seen tonight!
You start the day at the restaurant with a hearty campesino breakfast. This typical breakfast is usually eaten by the local farmers and so there is rice with beans, egg, a delicious coffee, juice and some fruit. After breakfast, one of the staff members will explain more about the lodge, the project, the history and also the vision for the future, before you start your 30-45 minute walk to the new reforestation area. Here you will contribute to the reforestation with your own local tree. You will also receive a certificate with the coordinates of the tree, so that you will be able to find it again in a few years. Afterwards you will check out and continue your journey by yourself or with one of our packages.
