La Tarde is a family project that began more than 15 years ago in a small community of very few families located in the upper parts of the Osa Peninsula next to the Corcovado National Park. The place has become a hot spot for amphibians and reptiles, it is the only place in the world where one of the two largest vipers of the world (Black-headed Bushmaster) has been studied in its natural habitat. In La Tarde also has been discovered a new species of rodent for the country.
One of the things that tourists like most is the family atmosphere and the freedom to organize their time on the trails at their own pleasure. Also in the night walks you can see huge tarantulas, scorpions, leaf insects, mantis, frogs, snakes and if it is rainy season you can see the iconic poisonous frogs and glass frogs. At night during the rainy season you can see the bioluminescent fungi.
The rooms in La Tarde are comfortable without hot water or electric light in most rooms, except those found near the restaurant, one of the things you enjoy most are the sounds of the nights and be able to contemplate the stars in full darkness
