Be part of the show that nocturnal species create within our forests in the magical atmosphere of the night.
Mistico Arenal Hanging Bridges Park offers its guests the opportunity to observe the forest in the dark of the night with the Mistico Rainforest Night Walk. The tour is in our trails passing through the hanging bridges. The primary forest at night offers a completely different experience to which it is possible to experience during the day.
Costa Rica currently makes up 5% of the biodiversity of the world and that allows visitors to have a rich observation of species in its forest reserves. If we compare, for example, the population of butterflies we find that more than 2,000 species of butterflies are diurnal and 4,500 nocturnal. That is more than twice! Something similar happens with the activity of some amphibians, reptiles, mammals, and some species of exotic flowers that only bloom at night.
It is also possible to observe animals as frogs, snakes, lizards, mammals such as Kinkajou, coati, caucel or margays, nocturnal birds such as the owl and the barn owl in addition to the edge of the nocturnal species that inhabit the reserve will give the guest a spectacle in the magical setting of the darkness of the night.
