Caño Negro Wildlife Refuge
In the northernmost part of Costa Rica
, not far from the Nicaraguan border, the Caño Negro Wildlife Refuge is a remote, wildlife-rich area spanning close to 28,000 acres of untouched rainforest and quiet waterways. Nayara Springs arranges guided tours with one of their in-house naturalists down the Rio Frio (Cold River). Guests will see everything from green iguanas and caimans to howler monkeys and sloths, along with a wide representation of the country’s 300 bird species, including toucans, parrots, and cormorants. Lucky visitors will also see the more elusive ocelot or white-tailed deer.
