Great place for nature immersion, located in Guadalupe de La Palma de Puerto Jiménez and right next to the Corcovado National Park. What were once cattle pastures are now part of a program of regenerative processes in the forest, to create biological corridors between highly important forested areas and with the hope of creating a buffer zone area for the park’s unique flora and fauna.
