Rancho Naturalista


Rancho Naturalista is a long established eco lodge located on the slopes of the Talamanca mountains just south of Turrialba. It is considered one of the best lodges in Costa Rica for bird watching where you can spot hundreds of birds right from the terrace. The lodge is set within it’s own private reserve where over 450 species of birds have been recorded in total. There are also plenty of activities other than bird watching available such as hikes to waterfalls, horse riding, massages, yoga, cooking classes and more.

Although Rancho Naturalista is one of the best birdwatching lodges in all of Central America, there are also plenty of other activities available

This makes it a great place for couples where one person is a birder but the other wants to do something different. Excellent meals are prepared by their expert resident chef and served family style with the other guests. The rooms are simple but homely and comfortable. Overall it is a warm and welcoming atmosphere in a beautiful setting and the perfect place for birdwatchers, hikers, photographers and anyone who enjoys being in nature.
