La Ceiba Reserve
The goal of this 104-acre private reserve is to conserve land and protect local flora and fauna. It is a superb location for observing the annual migrations of several birds-of-prey. The name comes from an enormous Ceiba tree within the reserve's boundaries. An ideal hiking destination for nature lovers, the tree is 55 feet around at its widest point, and it is a 165 foot walk just to circumnavigate the base of the tree. La Ceiba Reserve is located between Puerto Viejo and Manzanillo, inside the Gandoca-Manzanillo National Wildlife Refuge.
