Rainforest Sensoria

Hike and Wildlife Observation

 

Guests report that within a few days at Kasiiya, their senses are attuned to the tropical dry forest of Guanacaste. This slice of paradise is a refuge for animals during the long dry months, a refreshing oasis of blue and green.

 

The day begins at about nine in the morning driving though villages of the descendants of the Chorotega tribe. Withinn two and a half hours, we reach the entrance of the Sensoria Nature Reserve. From here our private guide leads us along a hiking trail, trekking through pristine, ancient forests with our eyes peeled for the elusive tapir.

 

Under the lush endemic orchids and centennial trees, we enjoy a delicious mid-morning snack prepared by our chef.  We reach the blue waterfalls of Sensoria and behold the natural thermal springs, where a warm and curative dip is highly recommended. On the journey back we are given the choice of prolonging the adventure with a tour of the nearest village to enjoy fresh tropical fruits or returning to the blissful comforts of Kasiiya.

Palo Verde National Park

The Guanacaste lowlands and pasture fields are an intrinsic element of Costarican idiosyncrasy. The cattle, the rivers, the Liberian full moon, the sabaneros (cowboys) have been an inspiration since ancient times for popular music, stories and local legends.

 

After the river tour, you will experience the plainsman culture of Guanacaste and the heritage of the Chorotega culture. We will visit the town of Guaitil, home of the production of polychrome ceramics inspired by the prehispanic Chorotega culture, which is one of the most important legacies of the native indigenous cultures.

Arenal Volcano

This lake is of great importance to the country since it´s the biggest hydroelectric dam in Costa Rica, producing  12% of the country's total renewable energy.

 

Here, we´ll visit a private organic farm, walking through the fields of this plantation, where tropical birds take flight and you will learn about the tropical produce they grow.
