Meander through the remote wetlands of Cano Negro Wildlife Refuge and have the privilege of seeing many indigenous endangered species in their habitat. Popular with bird watchers, the refuge's many species are not seen anywhere else in Costa Rica. Once you've completed the long drive to the refuge, the site is only accessible from the marshes so those hoping for glimpses of wildlife and some memorable photos should book one of the boat or canoe day tours.
