Leave winter behind and enjoy spring showers at the Rancho Naturalista lodge in Costa Rica. Watch over 400 exotic birds such as the White-crowned Parrot and a Keel-billed Toucan in their own natural habitat This sanctuary is located on 120 acres of beautiful land and rainforest where you’ll also see rabbits, reptiles, and many other creatures. Want a little more action. No problem, you can always go horseback riding, hiking, or take a tour of the area.


Not sure what bird you’re looking at? Luckily, you can enjoy the view with a resident expert bird watching guide. And when you’re done touring, relax in one of the fifteen suites either within the lodge or in the garden for a little extra privacy. Then enjoy some delicious Costa Rican cuisine by their experienced staff of chefs.


If you’re feeling adventurous, try whitewater rafting on the Reventazon or Pacuare Rivers. Looking for something a little mellower, visit Lankester Gardens or plan day tours to nearby national parks and Indian ruins. Want to learn something new, take Spanish or photography lessons.
