Morning yoga session at the bamboo yoga deck. Breakfast. This morning enjoy a Waterfall trail walk. During the last 60 years, the Turrubares region underwent intensive deforestation to clear the way for agricultural crops and pastures. As a consequence, the region experienced the devastation of erosion and depletion of soil nutrients, ultimately resulting in diminished health and social conditions for humans as well as flora and fauna. The few areas left with healthy forests became shrines and home to a decreasing variety of wildlife, plant species and water sources. Amid this regional chaos, 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. The trail to the waterfall winds 800 meters (approximately one half mile) through the deep forest, to explore plants, animals, history and scenic beauty. Your walk is rewarded with time to take a refreshing dip and play in the waterfalls.
Lunch, afternoon visit the Botanical garden. This lodge was built in the middle of a botanical garden that covers 5 hectares (nearly 12-1/2 acres). This garden is a collection of more than 500 species of ornamental, medicinal and food plants from around the world. These gardens are divided into a mosaic of colorful plots that lie between natural ponds and streams. Palms, bromeliads, fruit trees, cacti, bamboo, lilies, heliconias and many others cover the earth like a multi-hued carpet. The guided walk follows a path that crosses the gardens and offers opportunities to learn about the wonderful world of plants and their relationship with humans in the natural environment.
