Things to do
Located on the lush Caribbean slopes of the Central Volcanic Mountain Range, La Danta Salvaje was founded in 1988 as a non-profit private forest reserve in an effort to protect the Costa Rican rainforest. Consisting of over 1,000 acres of primary growth bordering Braulio Carrillo National Park, the reserve forms part of the invaluable buffer zone necessary in preserving the integrity of the park and its surrounding area.
So far we have financed the project privately, but unfortunately just purchasing rainforest is not enough to protect it. It must be maintained as well, which means stopping animal and plant poachers, hunters and logging interests. In order to support and maintain the reserve, we began organizing these excursions.
We only take small group in order to preserve the natural environment and make sure to leave as small a footprint as possible. Our goal is to provide an experience that expands the public’s awareness of the importance of preserving the rainforest through immersion and education. We hope to leave our guests changed in a way that encourages them to respect and protect the environment.
