Explore the pristine natural beauty of the Cerro San Gil rainforest and the lifestyle of its local residents during this memorable journey to Las Escobas Springs.

Las Escobas is one of the two main rivers flowing from the Cerro San Gil, a 117,000-acre protected rainforest surrounded by mountains. The subject of intense study by renowned biologists, scientists, naturalists and ecologists, this thriving ecosystem is home to more than 400 bird species, as well as an abundance of reptiles, amphibious mammals and insects endemic to the region.

Upon arrival at the Las Escobas Springs Reserve, you will be welcomed by one of the reserve hostesses, then participate in a special educational program funded by FUNDAECO, a nature-preservation NGO that teaches students basic English language skills and incoming tourism services. During the program's 1.5-hour hike, several stops will be made for more detailed explanations and optional bathing in one of the puddles.

Following your hike, you will proceed to the community of Las Escobas, located just five minutes from the Las Escobas Springs Natural Reserve. Here, you will have an opportunity to interact with the local people, experience their daily lives and participate in a tortilla-making demonstration.

Afterward, you will be transferred back to the pier.
