Toucan's Trail Lodge

The area was bought in 1988 by the owners for family recreation. After several years, in 2014, thanks to the help of the renowned naturalist painter Tomas Sigrist, who envisioned the creation of a dedicated lodge exclusively for birdwatching, was created the Toucan's Trail!
The Toucan's Trail currently offers simple accommodation in a quiet place, with great harmony and contact with nature. Around the lodge there are several bird feeders and drinkers for hummingbirds. Also there is an hide where it's possible to photograph birds on the ground, and a swamp.
