Nature Tours in Rincón de la Vieja, Guanacaste
Hotel Hacienda Guachipelín’s Butterfly Farm, Serpentarium and Frog Exhibit are located in a beautiful all-natural setting in the middle of the forest, yet only 150 meters (about 165 yards) from the hotel. You’ll walk a delightful trail amid a myriad of trees and flowers toward the ranch’s Look-out Point, where you can see the Rincón de la Vieja and Santa Maria volcanoes along with the Pacific Coastline.
Our wildlife exhibit has 9 stations – with 23 species of snakes, including 11 which are poisonous or dangerous, 6 species of frogs that represent the different strata of the Costa Rican forests, and 2 basilisk species: the brown-colored variety of the Pacific and the emerald green type from the Caribbean. You’ll even have the opportunity to take a picture with a live boa! Within our interesting and interactive facility there is a beautiful Butterfly Garden, featuring the three major families of butterflies that live in Costa Rica: Pieridae, Papilionidae and Nimphalidae.
