Arrival to Santa Cruz, transfer to the Refugio Volcanes
In the morning, we leave from Santa Cruz heading for the National Park Amboró. The park is characterized by its different ecological floors – they are as many as the whole country of Costa Rica – with its immense wealth in flora and fauna: more than 1.200 of species of vertebrates. 840 of them are birds, with which Amboró is one of the richest regions in wild birds all over the world. But it is also habitat of the Jucumari (spectacled bear), of the jaguar, of the puma and of diverse species of monkeys and a great variety of mammals, reptiles and lizards. Our lodge, the refuge Volcanes, is located in the south limit of the National Park Amboró, at only one hour and a half of trip from Santa Cruz. The protected area of the lodge (282 ha) is located amid an astonishing landscape characterized by rocks of gritty stone several hundreds meters high amid a tropical cloudy forest. To sum up: a paradise for every lover of nature and ornithologist. In the afternoon, first trip from the refuge through the cloudy forests of the park with fantastic views on the formations of gritty stone. Night at the Refugio Volcanes/National Park Amboró (B/L/D)
