Curi-Cancha Reserve Tours

Curi-Cancha Reserve
The cloud forest of Curi-Cancha Reserve creates a habitat for flora and fauna such as colorful quetzals and monkeys. Visitors can explore the private reserve via several nature trails. Plus, the private reserve’s daily 50 person cap means you’ll see more wildlife without having to battle the crowds.

The Basics
The reserve’s daily visitor limit makes advance booking essential. Opt for a guided tour in order to learn about the reserve’s natural history, biodiversity, and conservation efforts, and to increase your chances of spotting elusive wildlife. For a chance to see nocturnal wildlife and hear the evening chorus of frogs and insects, visit as part of a night tour. Birdwatchers can also join a guided birding walk.
