Ecocenter Danaus is a natural heaven for travelers, located east of La Fortuna, a rather small ecological reserve, concerned with conservation, environmental education and sustainable touristic development of La Fortuna.
You’ll have the chance to take an easy circuit trail through the regenerating secondary rainforest. The Botanical Garden boasts about 600 species of plants; it includes areas dedicated to medicinal plants and a nursery of native species in danger of extinction. The butterfly garden and breeding center with more than 40 species will awaken your curiosity. There is also a natural frog reproduction area and a wetland – the ideal spot for bird nesting and observation. At Maleku House, a type of indigenous house, you will lean about the indigenous culture of Costa Rica.
And this is not all, during the trail you’ll be in the perfect place for observing the regenerating wildlife, birding and spotting mammals in their natural habitat; frogs, serpents, turtles, caimans, monkeys, sloths, reptiles, agoutis, and birds are usually seen around this area. Once back from the trail, you can visit the Ecocenter’s souvenir shop and enjoy a delicious fresh fruit snack.
