It's in a property of 5000 mts square. Your host can take you anywhere you need to go, just ask! At Explore Paradise you can relax in the pool, read, eat under the private cabana, and watch for wildlife. Beautiful birds like orioles, Motmot birds, parrots, and many more are easily seen *we even saw howler monkeys). Bring cash to pay, as getting money in Liberia is not always easy *dollars are commonly accepted, and sometime credit cards are OK). The guest houses have modern conveniences including a full kitchen with groceries just 15 minutes away in Liberia. The most practical clothing is a bathing suit, but remember sunscreen and bug spray. Trips are very inexpensive when you figure you do not have to rent a car, and Eladio takes you to the exact location without any guesswork. Also, many of these locations would not be easily accessed by a car (Eladio has a 4wd Toyota, very rugged). Considering the limited time you might have in Costa Rica, taking a tour with Eladio is a great bargain! Considering the limited time you might have in Costa Rica, taking a tour with Eladio is a great bargain! Secret waterfall hike: only 45 minutes from Explore Paradise, this secluded waterfall is an exciting back road drive and short hike away. On the way you will see colorful birds and Dry Forest foliage. A short scramble brings you to your own private waterfall and plunge pool! Glide gently into the water, or cliff dive like your guide. There are rocks to sit on/rest on, or take the short swim and sit under the falls! Snorkel and Fishing Trip: A whole day excursion which includes a beautiful ride through small villages, stopping at a small fishing port about an hour away. From there you will take a wonderful boat ride, and if you like to fish get a line wet too! Then you will snorkel with your guide and … turtles, eagle rays, jack fish, puffers, and many many more. Bring your lunch and dine on your own tropical beach! Try not to get lonely, as there are no other people. Rainforest: A whole day tour, ride over the continental divide and into the rain forest! Many rare and colorful birds, including toucans! You might also see a sloth (or two or three!), snakes, and many frogs (in the rainy season). Stop at a private hot spring for a relaxing soak before driving home. Volcano and beach tour: About an hour away, the volcano is in the transitional forest (between the dry and rain forests). There are several volcanic features along a mild to moderate hike. Your host will point out many of the trees, and there are chances to see monkeys (howler monkeys) and many different birds. The beach is a wildlife refuge of white volcanic sand and there are some rocks that hold good amounts of fish. You can also enjoy wildlife such monkeys, coatis, mangrove birds and forest birds. Palo Verde National Park: One of the rarest birds in Costa Rica, the Jabiru, can be spotted here. Eladio has hosted many ornithologists, and his experience will help you find this beautiful species. Also, crocodile, coati, and capuchin monkeys may be spotted This is a hot area, so make sure to stop at a local waterfall on the way home and cool off.

We had a great stay at Eladio’s. He had so much energy and good recommendations for the local parks. Had a few minor issues with the place that were always fixed by the time we got back. The pool was super nice too.
