Kekoldi full-day tour from Puerto Viejo
Begin your day tour with pick-up from your hotel, then visit an old, abandoned cocoa plantation. You will slowly ascend by foot through the forests of the area. Your guide will tell you the local community, its history, culture and traditions. Listen and look out for birds, frogs, butterflies and other animals as well as exotic flowers like heliconias. During the climb through the forest, you will stop at an observation deck, where you can relax and watch the birds of prey as well as the mountains of Talamanca, the Panama Sixola River valley, and the Atlantic coast. Continuing through the tropical forest, you will stop at a waterfall where you can go for a swim. The last stop on your tour will be at the home of a local Bribri family for a delicious lunch and a conversation about the indigenous traditions and customs. You can also purchase local crafts in the community before heading back to your hotel.
