Activity Description

To this day, the Capuchin Monkey Trail still holds the title for the longest path we have ever designed within the Reserve. It spans a length of 2 miles/3.2 kilometers (or 2.1 miles/3.5 kilometers if the walk starts from the Lodge) and connects several different sites throughout the reserve. In total, the whole circuit can take up to 4-5 hours.

On this trail, we will get to stop at areas (also known as leks) where the Club-wing Manakin birds gather to perform their courtship dances. This trail also leads us to a fork in the path that will take us down to the Healing Waterfall (0.8 miles/1.3 kilometers) and then finally to the Laguna River. The last stretch of the journey will see us walking upstream along the river to the Magnolia trail, which takes us on our way back to the Lodge (2 hours, 0.9 miles/1.5 kilometers).

Alternatively, we can also walk upstream to Tower 4 and then return the Lodge aboard the Dragonfly.
