Walk with a bilingual naturalist guide through a permaculture farm and learn about what is grown there and how. Get a chance to sample fresh fruit, drinks, and homemade chocolate, plus see a large variety of exotic wildlife in the nearby rainforest, including poison dart frogs and toucans
In 1987, an abandoned cacao farm was converted into the Puerto Viejo Botanical garden – a permaculture farm with a variety of fruits, tropical flowers, and spice trees. Your bilingual naturalist guide will walk you through the farm to see rare tropical plants and learn about how crops like bananas, nutmeg, and black pepper are grown and sold in commercial markets. In the surrounding rainforest, your guide will show you a variety of wildlife, including four kinds of poison dart frogs, reptiles, and many species of tropical birds, including toucans.
You will also have a chance to try fresh fruit drinks, taste fruits which are in season, sample homemade chocolate, and learn about how to use plants for medicinal, ethnobotanical, and ornamental purposes.
Time: Anytime between 8:00 am and 4:00 pm (when the garden closes)
