Located on the lush Caribbean slopes of the Central Volcanic Mountain Range, LA DANTA SALVAJE was founded in 1989 as a private forest reserve in an effort to protect the Costa Rican rainforest. Consisting of over 323 hectares of primary growth bordering Braulio Carrillo National Park, the reserve forms part of the invaluable buffer zone necessary in preserving the integrity of the park and its surrounding area. It forms part of the Mesoamerican Biological Corridor. Spectacular mountain vistas and rich in fauna. Functioning eco-lodge.
Also, the reserve has been receiving annual Payments for Environmental Services through FONAFIFO (National Foresty Financing Fund) since 1997 and still has 4 years left on the current 10-year contract which can then be renewed.
