The organic orchard is a ten-minute walk away from the main lodge. It is located in a small valley surrounded by jungle. There are over 125 types of tropical fruit in the orchard, collected by Peter Aspinall, the owner, in Costa Rica and from around the world. Some of the fruit is used in the lodge's kitchen. There are many trails in the orchard, and the mix of fruit trees, shrubs, open space and jungle attracts wildlife.
Tiskita offers a tour in the orchard and fruit tasting.
