A hundred years ago the entire Pacific coast of Nicaragua, was a dense tropical jungle that at higher altitudes was permanently shrouded by a cloud of fog that kept it humid and lush all year round. El Bajo, is today one of the last remaining pockets of this once huge cloud forest. For scientist, students -from grade school to university – it is a rare biological treasure that offers the opportunity to study wildlife, plants and tree species, in an understood environment. Major attractions to be seen are the yellow neck parrots, the rare monarch and crystal winged butterflies and the mighty ceiba tree which can reach heights of 50 meters or more.
For your explorations, we offer 2,4 and 8 hour hikes through the forest in the company of our resident biologist, Dr. Byron Walsh. Not to be missed are the 5 am birdwatching tour and the moonlight safaris.
Biking aficionados can enjoy 58 kms of riding trails that weave you through highs and lows of the property.
For those in need of an adrenaline rush we recommend taking the challenge on our expertly designed rope courses and catching a view of the forest from the very tree tops.
Those seeking calm can experience Habitarte by taking a morning class on our yoga deck, followed by a steam bath and massage.
If you wish to learn something new- do take part in one of our perma-culture classes. You will discover the joy of gardening. Whatever activity you choose we guaranty you will experience life from a different perspective and leave Habitarte feeling recharged and transformed.
