A living laboratory to research the nature

Imagine a luxurious natural place… river streaming sound, birds singing, butterflies flying, frogs singing, thousands of insects of all colors and sizes, and the smell of the fresh forest… that’s the RAINFOREST in Mariposario El Bosque Nuevo.

Our guesthouse has served a number of visitors from universities and foreign institutions around the world. Our guests make the most of the lush biodiversity surroundings to develop their biological investigations. It is a great opportunity for students and professors to engage first-hand with nature.

In our rustic but comfortable farm-house we can accommodate groups of 10-15 guests, provide lodging, alimentation and internet access for a convenient rate.  The farm is home to butterflies and a varied fauna. With a little luck you will run into jaguars, ocelots, tapirs, anteaters, howler monkeys, tucans, different bat species, bullet and leaf-cutter ants, rhinoceros beetles and many more you could help us discover!
