Claro del Bosque Expedition
Share the cool morning air with some of the over 350 species of birds found in the Peninsula de Osa.After breakfast join us on an excursion to our off-the-grid, organic farm that rests in a serene clearing in the rainforest. We will be trekking thought virgin forest on the "Tinamou Trail", traversing private reserves that adjoin Corcovado National Park. The hike should take about an hour and a half depending on the pace and any sightings the group may have and then we will emerge into the calm and sunny, open space of "Claro del Bosque".
This new project that we have started intends to be a ‘’Food Garden’’ for the hotel and plans to disseminate seeds, plant material and knowledge to the local communities. The installation can also play host to student and university groups, volunteer programs and offer a base for short and long term studies of the complex ecosystems of the Osa Peninsula.While we are at the farm you can help squeeze fresh sugar cane juice and enjoy dried fruits produced in our solar dryer. Lunch will be served in the thatched ‘’Rancho’’ and afterwards there will be time to wander down to a sun-dappled stream to cool off or to just hang out at the shelter by the water. In the afternoon we’ll take a short, improved road back to the hotel for a well deserved rest.
