Nature’s Neighbors

The Costa Rican jungle.  It truly is a magical place!  A space that is filled with lush plantation, vibrating energy…and lots of wildlife. Costa Rica is one of, if not the, most bio-diverse environments in all the world and the minute you arrive at Hacienda you will quickly understand how we are all just a small part of this complex community created my Mama Earth.  Often times, guests arrive here unarmed with this knowledge, and it can be a bit of a shock to learn that while here, we all do share the land with the creatures that were here before us.  From the Olive Ridley Sea Turtle, to the wide array of birds and parrots inhabiting the canopy above, we do make it our aim to educate our visitors about the who’s and the what’s they may encounter while here.  Today we thought we might share a short list of some of some of the most common critters that may cross your path while here; so may we present: The Hacienda  Nature of Things!
