Terra Folia
Established 1992

Northern corridor, Braulio Carrillo National Park, COSTA RICA

Rainforest Terra Folia is a private rainforest preserve located at the northern edge of Braulio Carrillo National Park in the Caribbean lowlands of Costa Rica. With 700 acres of dense forest, rolling hills, steep canyons, pristine rivers and exciting wildlife, Terra Folia is truly an ecological treasure.

The tropical rainforest is the most species-rich environment on Earth. Still at Terra Folia we do more than protect threatened wildlife habitat. As a growing facility for environmental education we are engineering a new model for sustainable settlement at the wilderness frontier. In that quest, the pristine living wilderness serves as guide.

Terra Folia sponsors activities in research, education, and wilderness adventure. Based on the concept of BIOPATHS(TM) we are developing a unique trail system to highlight exciting features of the rainforest--towering trees, cascading waterfalls, diverse habitat--with much less detrimental impact on the native flora and fauna than conventional tourist operations.

Favorite Swimming HoleGuest facilities include cabins at Patas Peladas, the site of our pineapple nursery, and the new "monkey house" El Bobo, an innovative, low-impact two-story cabin on a forested ridge above the Tiger River for serious naturalists who want total rainforest immersion.

Through our sister operation La Ronda, an ecological family farm near the capital city, we also sponsor day tours to the rainforest. Our lovely guesthouse El Montanero is available for families and small groups who prefer a more natural setting in the Central Valley than busy downtown San Jose. La Ronda is only a short drive from the international airport.

Please browse our webpages to discover who we are, and then contact us for more information! We would love to have you visit us in the spectacular Costa Rican rainforest.

Warm Regards,

Rick Chatham
