Poza Blanca Lodge participates in a species preservation project so you will be able to admire multicolored macaws (scarlet, red and green), pacas or tepezcuintles and white-tailed deer. This last species has been the symbol of Costa Rica's fauna since 1995. All these species are endangered so they are currently paid particular attention and care in specially selected and authorized sanctuaries like ours.
The property is constantly visited by many different species of birds. It is common to see them in the surrounding trees. In the mornings their singing is a real concert. In the evenings you can hear the peculiar sound that the macaws make at the end of the day.
