Visit Kekoldi Indigenous Reserves in Puerto Viejo de Talamanca

Kekoldi is an important reservation for the indigenous Bribri people. Encompassing over 8,500 acres of rainforest, the reserve is a hotspot for conservation. 

Bribri guides will welcome you into their homes and introduce you to their way of life. 

Hike through the jungle and absorb it through the eyes of the region’s indigenous people. Sample medicinal plants, witness cacao being processed, and learn how fiber is made from wild plants.

Listen as the Bribri explain their conservation efforts, including the breeding of endangered green iguanas. They began this effort in the early 1990s to combat the species’ local extinction and have since released over 30,000 iguanas into the wild.
