Nite Secrets of Old Gum tree Rainforest

Jacó, Costa Rica

Experience hosted by Juan

2 hours
Includes drinks, equipment
Up to 10 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

We will meet at Playa Hermosa de Jaco, at the facilities of Chicle Rainforest. In this place, we will give you indications about our next experience. From there, we will begin our nocturnal walk through the paths of an ancient forest of Costa Rican native species with millenary trees. We will learn to interact with nocturnal and silent life of this kind of forest and its most important nocturnal inhabitants: the rubber trees of Manilkara, which gave rise to chewing gum. You will fall in love with these twisted trees, with their strange forms of growth and soft moss on the bark. The trees of this forest breathe and communicate each other.
At the end of our experience, we will be able to appreciate the great variety of nocturnal insects that inhabit this magical forest, in the middle of the stillness and peace of an old forest.
Other things to note
Bring your own water and cameras if you wish. I will have insect repellent, or you can bring yours, better if it is friendly to the environment. If you come by car, we have free private parking located next to the CHICLET office.

I am an agricultural engineer and developer of sustainable ecotourism projects. I have more than 25 years of experience working in this forest, which I know like the back of my hand. Trees are part of my family. When I enter to the forest, I disconnect from everything and enter to my favorite place in the world. I share my passion for the forest with my other passion: good coffee.

Where you'll be

We will travel at night through the trails of the Old Chiclet Forest in Playa Hermosa de Jaco, located by the sea on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica. In addition to having the sound of the waves of the sea, we will have the opportunity to visit a forest sanctuary at night with native species of flora and fauna, unique in the rest of the world.
