Hitoy Cerere Biological Reserve

Shiroles, Costa Rica

Text©Beatrice Blake-New Key to Costa Rica

Definitely off the beaten track. For hardy explorers, there are beautiful views, clear streams, waterfalls, and lots of birds to see, including some lowland species that are hard to find elsewhere due to deforestation. The 9-kilometer Espavel trail has the best primary-growth forest. You have to take a Valle de la Estrella bus from Limón to get to Hitoy Cerere. The bus winds its way into the banana plantations. Get off at Finca 12, the end of the line. Jeep-taxis there will take you ten kilometers farther and leave you at the entrance. They will return to pick you up at an agreed-upon time and can take you back to Cahuita if you want. Try to arrange a ride with park personnel for the cheapest rates. Samasati Nature Retreat arranges tours to Hitoy Cerere. You will need four-wheel drive for the last 14 kilometers if you drive yourself.
