Wildlife of the Finca Esperanza Verde

One of the many fabulous things about the Finca Esperanza Verde is the opportunity to spot a wide variety of wildlife.   For example, if you want to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner with hummingbirds – this is a wonderful spot!

But hummingbirds (colibri) are not the only birds here – not by a long way!

As I described in my last post, I fulfilled a childhood dream and saw my first 2-toed and 3-toed sloths here at the Finca.

Monos Congos (Howler Monkeys) are very common and act as a natural alarm clock most mornings.  Was lucky enough this time to see some with their babies.

The Finca also has an extensive garden (flowers and vegetables) and grows a large amount of the food that guests eat.  This is the perfect spot to see a wide variety of butterflies.

The best way to see the wildlife is to go on a hike with Omar or Umberto – they are amazing at being able to spot everything.   Or keep your own eyes open as you walk around.  You’ll see the hummingbirds at very least 😉  They are pretty hard to miss!
