Mistico Arenal Hanging Bridges Park offers its guests the opportunity to observe the forest in the dark of
the night with the Mistico Rainforest Night Walk. The tour is in our trails passing through the hanging
bridges. The primary forest at night offers a completely different experience to which it is possible to
experience during the day.
Costa Rica currently makes up 5% of the biodiversity of the world and that allows visitors to have a rich
observation of species in its forest reserves. If we compare, for example, the population of butterflies
we find that more than 2,000 species with diurnal activity and 4,500 are nocturnal. That is more than
twice! Something similar happens with the activity of some amphibians, reptiles, mammals, and some
species of exotic flowers that only bloom at night.
It is also possible to observe animals as frogs, snakes, lizards, mammals such as Kinkajou, coati, caucel
or margays, nocturnal birds such as the owl and the barn owl in addition to the edge of the nocturnal
species that inhabit the reserve will give the guest a spectacle in the magical setting of the darkness
of the night.
