It constitutes one of the most diverse biological areas and one of vital importance for the maintenance of environmental quality in the north of the country.

The area constitutes a habitat with a great variety of species of flora and fauna and migratory natural communities, many of them unique or in danger of extinction that makes it a site of international importance, since they constitute, together with the humid zones to the south of the Lake from Nicaragua, one of the most outstanding examples of the humid zone in Mesoamerica.

The refuge is home to many migratory waterfowl for part of the year, particularly in the Caño Negro lagoon, which is fed by the Frío River during the rainy season.

The forests, prairies, and swamps of the area give refuge to various species in danger of extinction such as jaguars, tapirs and ocelots, peccaries. Of course, you will have the chance to spot the 3 species of monkeys (the white-faced monkey, the howler or howler monkeys, and the spider monkeys), as well as sloth, anteater, green iguanas, basilisc.

During the dry season, the area is reduced to small lagoons, canals and marshes that are home to dozens of species of migratory birds of many species such as storks, jabiru, limpkin, sandpipers, yellowlegs, spoonbills, ibis, warblers, and more.

Useful Tips for #1 Best 3 days - 2 nights
Caño Negro Wildlife Refuge Boat Tour

Pleeease... Bring at least a decent binocular. Animals like to stay away from us. So at least a decent binocular is a must to spot any kind of animal. The minimum recommended size for a binocular is 8×36 or 8×40 is a very good decision. Today you can purchase a good binocular for $100. Try to avoid the cheapest binoculars, especially when you go for birdwatching.

Repellent and Mosquito “plaquitas” (in Google, just type “plaquitas mosquitos”.

YES, in Costa Rica, ALL around Costa Rica we do have mosquitoes. Try to buy the repellent in Costa Rica, is stronger.

Also, for your hotel room, we do have a special electric item, is an electric burner with an insert, in Spanish is “plaquitas”, that works perfectly, and you buy it in every supermarket.

Long pants and long sleeves. I know is hot. But when we visit nature, the refuge, especially when we go for a walk, or during a night walk for frogs, long pants and long sleeves are a must.

Good pair of shoes. Please, avoid “chancletas”, flip-flops, any kind of flip-flop when you visit nature. Best shoes investment? By rubber boots. You can purchase this in any hardware store in Costa Rica, they are cheap.

Rubber boots are the best idea especially when you visit Costa Rica during the rainy season.

A decent camera. Even if taking pictures are not your thing, cellphone cameras are useless for nature pictures. They work fine for panoramic, but if you like to take a picture of a monkey, will be useless. If you like to travel light, look for a bridge camera. 

Cellphone local chip-card. Purchase a pre-paid local line. They work fine in all of Costa Rica. So you will be sure to have internet for WhatsApp and other communication. Sometimes, when you travel to a hotel that is not close to a city, there is no cables company that offers the service. So hotels do not have good wifi service.

If you are a birdwatcher, is very useful to have a good cellphone, a good Bluetooth speaker, and the application of Merlin Bird ID. (for Android and IOS) Install this app at home, download the bird package for Costa Rica and Nicaragua. This is the best way to attract birds around. For example, when you have a moment in the garden of your hotel like we do at Hotel de Campo, use the sound. Call the birds.
