El Arenal Natural Reserve is a dense cloud forest that is home to a wide variety of flora and fauna such as bromeliads, orchids, giant ferns, endangered mammals, and exotic birds.
We start the tour at La Hammonia. This is a self-sustaining organic farm located within the reserve where coffee, vegetables, livestock, cheese and other crops are grown. At this farm we will see how it is possible to farm the land while protecting the environment at the same time. After visiting the farm, we start a 3-hour hike through a well-preserved cloud forest and one of the most accessible ones of Nicaragua. El Arenal nature reserve is home to exotic birds such as the Resplendent Quetzal and the Three-wattled Bell Bird. Also, numerous mammals like monkeys, agouties and peccaries are seen often.
