“Parrots, sloths, monkeys, caimen, coati, peccary, birds galore, and more.
Everyday was an adventure”

The Ecolodge is surrounded by Baru National Wildlife Refuge which conserves 330 hectares (815 acres) of tropical rainforest, mangrove, wetlands, river bank, and beach front. This wide variety of ecosystems means a high level of biodiversity, and that is why Bird Watchers have sighted over 365 species on the refuge. The six cottages and six pool view room are very nice and comfortable.

The open air restaurant serves delicious typical Costa Rican dishes at popular prices. Within the gardens surrounding the lodge you will find an orchid garden and a bird watching tower. Eleven ecological tours are available including rainforest canopy tours, hiking tours, overnight tours and bird watching tours. Hacienda Baru has been catering to Ecotourism and Birding in Costa Rica for more than 30 years.
