Rara Avis is a new way to save rainforest. You learn how, while
you experience the richness and splendor of the most diverse environment
on earth. Rara Avis was developed to show that we can make rainforest
economically productive and so save it from destruction. In Rara
Avis, you will be in a remote pristine jungle - true wilderness
- bordering Braulio Carrillo National Park and the Zona Protectora
