TAPIR VALLEY
Nature Reserve, Bijagua Costa Rica

 

Tapir Valley  is a private nature reserve located in rural northern Costa Rica. A group of concerned citizens purchased the land over ten years ago with the vision of protecting valuable rainforest habitat for many animals including the endangered Baird's Tapir. The reserve covers over 220 hectares of primary and secondary rainforest and adjoins the Volcano Tenorio National park and is a 15 minute drive from the village of Bijagua.

Here you will experience some of the best birding in Costa Rica and be able to enjoy exclusive access to the rainforest reserve. Escape the crowds and explore pristine rainforest at its best. There are over 8km of private hiking trails on the property and multiple birdwatching platforms.

The reserve is owned and managed by Donald Varela Soto (a local Bijaguan nature guide) Melvin Rodriguez and their families.

Donald and his wife Pip Kelly also own and manage Casitas Tenorio B&B in Bijagua.
