The Macaw Lodge Private Reserve was lovingly nurtured into an oasis of biodiversity. The Reserve spans 100 hectares (247 acres) between dry and humid forests, entirely dedicated to the preservation of its rich natural diversity and ancient history. Around the Lodge is a tropical botanical garden where there are more than 500 species from around the world including ornamental, medical and agricultural plants. The264-acre property features eight acres of cultivated paths where you can wander through the giant black bamboo forest, hike to the waterfall and take a refreshing dip, enjoy a rest in the gazebo overlooking the pond or find solace in the palm forest.
