Trails in our Private Reserve Chilamate Jungle
Given the location of the Chilamate Rainforest Eco Retreat and the private reserve Chilamate Jungle, in the heart of the San Juan la Selva Biological Corridor, a key piece of the larger Meso- American Biological Corridor, and the proximity to the la Selva Biological Station and Braulio Carrillo National Park, it is very easy to appreciate a wide biodiversity of species including animals such as monkeys, armadillos, pacas, a great variety of bird, amphibians insects, and much more.
Chilamate Rainforest Eco Retreat has a private reserve of 20 hectares of rainforest with around 6km of trails, some of which are appropriate for self-guided walks.
For guests that stay a minimum of three nights we can coordinate a complementary 2 hour guided naturalist walk in our reserve or a 2 hour forest therapy session led by Retreat owner Meghan Casey who is a certified forest therapy guide. For Retreat guests who stay 1-2 nights we can offer you the guided naturalist walk for $15 per person and the forest therapy session for $20 per person. For others, who are not staying at the Retreat, the cost is $30 per person for a guided naturalist walk and $40 per person for a 2.5 hour forest therapy session.
We are also happy to coordinate night walks through the jungle, the cost is also $30 per person for a two hour excursion.
It is very easy to appreciate the incredible biodiversity around the Retreat including animals such as monkeys, sloths, kinkajous, a great variety of birds, beautifully colored poison dart frogs and other amphibians, stick bugs, mantis and other amazing insects, and much more, given the location of the Chilamate Rainforest Eco Retreat and the private reserve Chilamate Jungle, in the heart of the San Juan la Selva Biological Corridor, a key piece of the larger Meso- American Biological Corridor and also the reserve’s proximity to the la Selva Biological Station and Braulio Carrillo National Park.
There is no cost to use the trails for self guided walks for our guests. If you are not staying at the reserve but would like to do a self guided walk the cost is $10 per person. Please do let us know when you enter the reserve and when you plan on coming back. We have rubber boots available for your use, please ask at reception. Close-toed shoes are mandatory on the trails.
