Rancho Humo is a beautiful property of 2638 acres. Thanks to the determination of a family, it was transformed from a cattle farm into an international example of wetland rescue. This is the new tour in the wetland area in Guanacaste.
In 2006, a plan was initiated to restore 2000 acres of former wetlands in favor of a new conservation area.
Here you can experience numerous ecosystems: mangrove, wetlands, dry tropical rainforest, pastures, a large variety of flora and fauna including herons, black crowned night herons, hawks, ducks, roseate spoonbills, wood stork, and the largest and most exotic aquatic bird in Guanacaste: the Jabiru (Jabiru mycteria, Ciconiiforme Order, Ciconiidae Family). The Jaribu has a height of 122-140 cm, a wingspan of 230-260 cm, a weight 8 kg and a length of the beak of 30-33 cm.
Aside from the captivating scenery, Rancho Humo is an hacienda that offers the culture of a traditional and picturesque town, Puerto Humo.
