Hacienda La Alegria
Located on the lush Caribbean slopes of the Central Volcanic Mountain Range, this conservation property was founded in 1989 as a private forest reserve in an effort to protect the Costa Rican rainforest. Consisting of over 323 hectares of primary growth bordering Braulio Carrillo National Park, the reserve forms part of the invaluable buffer zone necessary in preserving the integrity of the park and its surrounding area. The reserve forms part of the Mesoamerican Biological Corridor. Spectacular views of the mountains, rivers, waterfalls and rich in fauna. Includes a functioning eco-lodge. The reserve has been receiving annual payments for environmental services through FONAFIFO (national forest financing fund) since 1997.
