Nature Tour

At Selva Negra, all you need to explore the beauty and majesty of nature are your naked senses, but a trained pair of eyes can help you unlock mysteries that you might miss on your own. Our English-speaking nature guides know all the secrets and hidden places of bird, animal and plant life in a virgin cloud forest. Nature tours are limited to small groups in order to enhance your experience of the tour and minimize disturbing wildlife. Please refer to our nature reserve's section of the website where you will get a preview of what you will experience with our nature guide. Nature tours are limited to 10 individuals; this is to insure limited impact on the mountain and trails. 


Entrance fees, guide.
