Hotel de Campo, is one of the only few hotels in Costa Rica, that are built inside a botanical garden. In order to complete your Vacations in Costa Rica birdwatching and ecotourism experiences, we develop over the years an open air botanical garden.
Our botanical garden represents many things for us. Our passion for the plants, generations of knowledge about local flora and fauna, and engagement in conservation and protection of this beautiful nature and wildlife.
The project began about 20 years ago on a ground of 5ha. By now, we successfully grew 200 different species of plants, natives among exotics, fruit trees, medicinal, timber and ornamental plants. This reforestation project continues with native plants as a priority.
We have seen each one of the trees growing, admired their first flowers and enjoyed their fruits. In the same way, we have felt the satisfaction to see a lot of birds, mammals, amphibians and reptiles arriving for food and rest, feeling safe and at home in our garden.
The botanical garden is not only about plants, orchids, fruit trees. But it is also about the conservation of the nature in Costa Rica.
As we plant new species, we think about which kind of butterflies, hummingbirds, frogs, birds, monkeys, and so on, will be living in it, will reproduce in this environment.
Our botanical garden is today the home of dozen of species of animals.
