Nature Walks at Night
Most people only visit the rainforest in Costa Rica by day. But you have not seen the rainforest until you have walked in it at night! After dark is the time when nocturnal animals wake up, hunt, and prowl. Scientists say more than 60 percent of the wildlife found in tropical rainforests is nocturnal.
A guided nature walk in the rainforest is a thrilling experience. Wildlife you may encounter—from safe distances —include frogs, porcupines, anteaters, opossums, night birds, bats, snakes, insects, and spiders (like hole-dwelling tarantulas!).
