About us:

Our Philosophy

The best way to experience nature is to get on the other side of the tv screen and become part of the documentary ourselves!

Our Passion

To learn and to share our insight of Tropical Forests and help create an awareness of the importance of their conservation.

Our Vision

We want people to explore the different Ecosystems of Costa Rica and learn about how they are so dfferent eventhough they are so close to one other.

We want our guests to see and learn about unique plants and animals found in each forest.
