When you travel to Costa Rica, chances are you want to experience the rainforest and you hope to see wildlife. Tiskita has an extensive, well-marked trail system to help you with that.
Explore the Rainforest
The trails go through Tiskita Private Biological Reserve, which is all rainforest, and into the organic orchard. Maps are available if you would like to explore Tiskita by yourself (guests only).
Guided Walks & Tours
Tiskita has knowledgeable guides that are excellent at spotting wildlife. The guided walks and tours start at the lodge. The large trail system makes the difficulty and duration easy to adapt. Rubber boots and walking sticks are available at the lodge, free of charge.
There are many options for guided walks in Tiskita. An easily accessible trail is “the stream trail”, a trail that follows a small creek through the rainforest. A longer and tougher hike is “the back trail”, a trail that loops around the reserve.
If you are not a guest at Tiskita, but you would like to go on a guided walk, please call: +(506) 2776-2193 or +(506) 2776-2194 and leave a message.
For those interested to experience the rainforest at night, Tiskita offers a night tour when the conditions are right (moon, weather, animal activity etc.).
Anybody can go birdwatching at Tiskita, there are so many birds around that you’ll easily spot many different species throughout the day. Tiskita’s guides are well trained in spotting and identifying birds, so they can help you find even more.
Fruit Tasting Tour
Tiskita’s organic orchard is situated in a small valley fringed by the jungle. Over 125 types of native and exotic tropical fruit grow in the orchard. The fruit attracts wildlife, therefore the tour is also good for watching wildlife.
Delicious tropical fruit can be tasted like, for example, Cacao (Chocolate), Anona, South American Sapote, Starfruit, and Mangosteen. The fruit tasting depends on what is in season.
