Cabina Los TucanesThere is a small, but modern log cabina called “Cabina Los Tucanes” (TheToucan Cabin) located on the property, a carport and concrete storageunit. The property is situated on a dead end road which leads to theDendrobates reserve, from which the active Arenal volcano can beviewed, on clear days. The cabin is a mere 15 meters (50 feet) from thisreserve, which is part of the largest block of protected area in Costa Rica.This conglomerate of Parks includes the Children’s Eternal Rainforest(Bosque lluvioso Eterno de los Niños) and is amongst Costa Rica’s mostpristine and well protected natural resources.
Cabina Los TucanesThe Rio Cacao (Chocolate River) is a fresh water creek coming out of the DendrobatesReserve that runs clear year round and is home to trout, shrimp and other endemicspecies. It is the only natural border separating the cabin from this magnificent forestenvironment.

This is a birdwatchers paradise. The best part of Cabin Los Tucanes is terrace overlooking thecreek and jungle.
