Affordable Drake Bay Nigh Hike

There’s a hidden and mysterious Costa Rica in the night.

Most of the species of the rainforest are nocturnal animals, which makes the forest an exciting and magical place to visit after the sun is down

During the Affordable Drake Bay Nigh Hike, equipped with flashlights, you’ll be able to see and examine life that is usually hidden from plain sight.

We urge you to record the sounds of the night; they will be unforgettable memories that you’ll want to listen to over and over again when you’re back home.

Guided by resident naturalist guides, the night hike awakens you to a world you may have never known existed.

During this hike, our guide will reveal interesting and outstanding aspects of nighttime activity in the Osa Peninsula: how they live and how the impact of insects on our lives and us on theirs.

Moths, iguanas, frogs, and spiders are common sightings, with snakes, wild cats, and other species of animal life present but less frequently observed during the night hike.

The night hike departs shortly after dinner and lasts approximately 3.5 hours. Make sure you have a good flashlight to serve as your main light source when walking through the rainforest. Hiking boots are recommended for the night hike.
