BANANITO JUNGLE & FARM TOUR

Tour

Bananito is a very small town, over half an hour (by car) from Cahuita. The town is the heart of one of Costa Rica’s largest banana plantations (about 2000 acres). Following the river Bananito upstream, you will notice Nature taking the upper hand.

You will reach “Banaga”, a tiny village and once you cross the river you will find yourself on a 250 acre jungle and organic farm! You are welcomed with our hand crafted ranch with a leaf roof. We have a unique collection of discovered sculpture from the region.

We offer a wooden stove organic lunch and the cleanest of spring water to be enjoyed by the river. A great part of our area is primarily rainforest and we strive to keep it that way. There is a jungle route that can be hiked which leads to a cave with a waterfall. There are heaps of jungle animals to be found along the way.

We grow bananas, yucca, avocados, cacao and more. You will savor these in our prepared lunch. The tour starts at 9.00 am from Kelly Creek, and you will be back around 14:00.

This excursion includes: jungle and farm tour, lunch, local guide and all the bananas you can eat. What you should bring: good footwear (preferably boots), natural insect repellant, a towel and a bathing suit.

Fee per person with own transport: 50$ (minimum two). Fee per child under the age of 12 years: 10$.
