Tiskita is renowned for its incredible wildlife which includes three species of monkeys, sloths, iguanas, tent bats, and basilisk lizards; 270 species of birds including parrots and scarlet macaws. The Lodge offers a tropical fruit orchard where you can sample tastes from its collection of over 100 tropical fruits, collected from around the world. This day you may walk the beach, cool off in a rainforest pool, and observe wonderful wildlife all around you!
Day 2: RAINFOREST WALK (B,L,D)
Every morning you may join the naturalist guide for an optional bird walk before breakfast. You may observe the rich and colorful variety of birds around the lodge when they are most active (free). Following breakfast, you will have a guided hike into the Tiskita rainforest reserve which features huge, ancient trees and protects many rare species such as mahogany. After your hike you will have free time to relax or explore on your own. You may walk to the nearby seaside village of Punta Banco or see the famous surf break at nearby Pavones.

Day 3: ORGANIC TROPICAL FRUIT WALK (B,L,D)
