Hacienda Barú Nature Walk
After a cup of coffee, your guide will take you on the lowland trails. Your experienced local Certifield Tour Guide will lead you first down sparsely wooded trail through a former teak plantation where myriad birds are found in the trees and the brush. This trail leads you to a creek, where egrets, herons, rails, and ibis are often found. The creek meanders in secondary forest until you hit a rural road to the beach, where you will have best opportunities to observe shore birds such as whimbrels, plovers, phalaropes, sandpipers and sanderlings, pelicans and frigate birds. From the beach it is a short walk back to the Guide Center, where you began.
