Internship opportunity at El Remanso!!

We will teach you all we can about sustainability and the Costa Rican rainforest, give you a comfortable place to sleep and all your meals in exchange for a few months of work with us as part of our miscellaneous team. You will love it!

Fer de lance release at El Remanso

Today we released a fer de lance viper (bothrops asper) that we found yesterday next to one of our parking lots. For safety reasons our guide Gerardo caught it and after showing it to our guests, brought it to an area of the forest where no trails or cabins are situated. Watch him give some interesting facts on these snakes while he releases the animal!
