    Sleep Inside A Botanical Garden
    During Your Vacations In Costa Rica

    Hotel de Campo Caño Negro is about ecotourism in Costa Rica. It is one of the onlies few hotels in Costa Rica that is built inside a botanical garden. In order to enjoy your Vacations in Costa Rica birdwatching and ecotourism experiences, we develop over the years an open-air botanical garden.

    Our botanical garden represents many remarkable things for us. Our genuine passion for the plants, generations of knowledge about local flora and local fauna, and engagement in successful conservation and necessary protection of this beautiful nature and abundant wildlife.

    Hotel De Campo Caño Negro
    Is The Choice For Birdwatching

    About 28 years ago we had a Vacation in Costa Rica birdwatching ecotourism. After leaving the beach, we start this project about 20 years ago on an extensive ground of 5ha. By now, we have successfully grow 200 different species of exotic plants, local natives among exotics, fruit trees, medicinal, valuable timber, and ornamental plants. This reforestation project continues with native plants as a key priority.

    We have seen each one of the trees growing, admired their first flowers, and undoubtedly enjoyed their delicious fruits. In the same way, we have felt the satisfaction to see a lot of exotic birds, mammals, amphibians, and reptiles arriving for food and rest, feeling safe and at home in our garden.

    The botanical garden is not only about plants, orchids, and fruit trees. But it is also about the conservation of nature in Costa Rica.

    As we carefully plant new species, we think about which specific kind of butterflies, hummingbirds, frogs, birds, monkeys, and so on, will be living naturally in it, and will reproduce naturally in this nurturing environment. This makes Hotel de Campo one of the greatest best birding lodges in Costa Rica

    Our botanical garden is today the home of dozens of species of animals.

    A few tips for a great Vacation in Costa Rica

    The best time to have a Vacations in Costa Rica birdwatching ecotourismwill depend on the type of vacation you want.
    For nature lovers that like an ecotour to see a little bit of everything, all year round is good. Nature is always there to amaze you. You will not be disappointed even on a rainy day.
    For a birding tour, if you are interested in any kind of bird, year-round is fine. But if you have any special interest in some spices, it will be better to coordinate the best moment of the year.

    One of the best places to visit in Costa Rica for a nature lover, or a more specialized birder and photographer is Caño Negro Wildlife Refuge. Here you can enjoy a special Vacations in Costa Rica birdwatching ecotourism.
    This is an amazing refuge with a different scenario. We have a lagoons area, a river, and a mostly forest section.
    This almost unique wetland, it allows you to enjoy the different panorama and also switching between animal species: birds, sloths, monkeys, caimans, iguana, and so on.

    Rainy season in Caño Negro - Costa Rica is from the beginning of May to the end of November approximately. The season begins with very light rain, occasionally. It is difficult to find an all-day rainy situation. Probably, the rainiest period is around October and November. But even so, it probably won’t rain all day.
    In any case, as our tours are private, we would organize with you the best moment of the day to go discover the refuge.

    YES. Rain is part of the ecosystem, and finally, birds and mammal are not very worried about that.
    In any case, we do offer private tours and specially organized based on your interest. So, when you arrive at Hotel de Campo, we will organize the best moment to go explore the refuge.

    Costa Rica is a safe country and is a great place for solo travelers, especially when you are very into nature. This because you will explore no crowded places.
    In any case, as everywhere around the world, be organized, choose your destination carefully, and be safe.
    About Caño Negro, we can ensure you it is an excellent destination for solo female.

    Yes! Caño Negro and Costa Rica in general are great destinations for family vacations. Caño Negro is a very quiet place, very safe. It is a safe place to discover nature. Also, for families, our tours are always private. So, you will enjoy it for sure.
    For a family vacation, we offer rooms with up to 3 beds (2 doubles and 1 single bed) and joined rooms. So, you will never be apart, but with privacy.

    TIP in Costa Rica is only included in the bar and restaurant bill. For any other products and services, it is not included.
    I consider that TIP is a personal choice, based on the kind of service you receive.

    The currency of Costa Rica is the colon, colones plural.

    USD is accepted in Costa Rica when it comes to tourism. The current exchange rate is around 650 colones to $1 but it changes daily. Google's change is quite accurate.

    For an ecotour vacation, I do recommend bringing clothes that dry fast and wick away moisture, good walking shoes, lots of sunscreen and mosquito repellent, sunglasses, a hat, a microfiber towel, an insulated water bottle.
    If you’re visiting in the rainy season, then we recommend bringing a waterproof rain jacket and a waterproof backpack or rain cover

    A very good pair of binoculars. And if you are a photographer a lens at least 400mm.
    Why? Because only caimans you can see really close. Everything else is far away.

    For the rainy season, a waterproof hiking shoe. Also, and especially for wetland places and rainforest, a good pair of rubber boots. This is what local use. They protect you very well from rain and mud. And also, they dry up very fast.
    During the dry season, very comfortable hiking shoes, always waterproof.

    It will depend on where you are going. For most touristic destinations and the cities, there are paved roads, but also in ugly conditions and a 4×4 can more comfortable. Even so, a regular is ok.
    Driving to Caño Negro from the north (Los Chiles) the road is paved. But between Caño Negro and Upala, you will find 25 km of dirt road.
    But other remote and rural parts of the country do and these are Osa Peninsula, Nicoya Peninsula, and the Costa Ballena

    Not really. Costa Rica as only a few main roads, and normally to arrive at some destination, you will not have more than 1 or 2 options. Instead of a GPS, I will use Waze, or Google Maps (not so accurate as Waze).
    I am sure, that everybody can share with you their location with Whatsapp and Waze.

    We do have mosquitos, everywhere. How many? It depends where you go and the season. It is a tropical country.
    My best recommendation: electric burner for mosquitos. As you arrive in Costa Rica, go to a supermarket and purchase an electric burner for mosquitos. It is the best solution to clean your room and sleep well everywhere. And you will find spare all-round in Costa Rica. You can find that use plaquette, or with liquid. I do prefer to travel around with plaquette. Repellent, always.

    Of course in Caño Negro you can see sloths. Inclusive, in our private forest sometimes you can find them.
