The hotel is located in a vast haven of lowland forests in which proliferates a remarkable biodiversity of wildlife. Originally the Gaia Garden (“Jardín GAIA”) was a center for the conservation and rehabilitation of local species and orchids. During the building of the hotel in 2005, the majority of the property was maintained untouched and remains until today available as a haven for local wildlife. This is where our guests can explore the flora and fauna Costa Rica has to offer on our daily guided tour. (Offered daily except on Mondays). The tour also includes a visit of the reintroduction program of the Scarlet Macaw which GAIA proudly hosts.
Gaia´s Private Nature Reserve is Costa Rica in its most pristine state. It is where many different species have a secure future thanks to the initiative of GAIA Hotel & Reserve to preserve this natural reserve for future generations to come and to reduce the ecological footprint.
