For eco-tourists and animal lovers, the Curu Wildlife Reserve is one of the highlights of the Nicoya Peninsula. In a tropical paradise environment visitors are almost guaranteed to see lots of animals in the wild.
Curu is privately owned and part of a large farm which combines sustainable agriculture and forest management with the protection of wildlife and nature.
Of the 1,496 hectare property only 5% (75 hectares) are protected under the terms of a "wildlife reserve". This zone encompasses the 200-meter-wide beach area, together with the mangrove estuaries and rivers. The reserve however mingles with the rest of the property, of which 75% is declared a protected forest and 20% is dedicated to low-impact agriculture.
Curu also connects to the Biological Wildlife Corridor of the Nicoya Peninsula in Costa Rica.
