Nature Walks

When you travel to Costa Rica, chances are you want to experience the rainforest and you hope to see wildlife. Tiskita has over 9 miles of extensive, well-marked trail systems to help you with that.

Explore the Rainforest

The trails go through Tiskita Private Biological Reserve, which is all rainforest, and into the organic orchard. Maps are available if you would like to explore Tiskita by yourself (guests only).

Guided Walks

There are many options for guided walks in Tiskita. An easily accessible trail is “the stream trail”, a trail that follows a small creek through the rainforest. A longer and tougher hike is “the back trail”, a trail that loops around the reserve.
