Ecotourism in Costa Rica

Ecotourism in Costa Rica with Natuwa consists of a walk in a thematic park with the assistance of a tour guide. With us, our visitors enjoy a variety of observation stations and learn about the animal species that inhabit the Sanctuary, such as jaguars, tapirs, monkeys, scarlet macaws, sloths and great green macaws. In addition, they will know the history of rescue animals, how they got here, how humans threatened them with the extinction of our biodiversity, and how to avoid it. 

This walk is through exuberant paths of botanical richness that embellish the landscape for a natural experience.

The tour is guided, and before entering, the visitor receives a short explanation of the rules and their importance. For example, Please DO NOT TOUCH THE ANIMALS, DO NOT SPEAK TO THE ANIMALS, DO NOT FEED THEM, DO NOT LEAVE THE PATHS, ETC. 

In this way, NATUWA minimizes stress to animals in the presence of humans. 

Therefore, we have trained personnel that handle information on ecological issues. The guides are attentive to providing respectful treatment to our clients, and the information provided generates awareness; to conserve our natural resources and thus contribute to protecting Costa Rican biodiversity becoming in a important ecotourism activities in costa rica.

In our case, the communities surrounding the Sanctuary obtain economic benefits to improve the quality of life of their inhabitants.

People find a way of life oriented in the management of local biodiversity. Thanks to this, they ensure access to their food and medicine.

On the other hand, Natuwa minimizes the transgression of the wildlife law, by showing the people of the community the benefits that are obtained by conserving natural resources such as macaws.

The community and volunteers understands that if we keep these beautiful birds in freedom and learn how to coexist with them, they will function as a pole of attraction for tourists visiting the Aranjuez community, increasing the local economy.
