Selva Verde Lodge & Rainforest Reserve was founded in 1985 by the Holbrook family to protect the rainforest and wildlife of the Sarapiquí region. Over the years, Selva Verde’s abundant biodiversity, comfortable rainforest lodge, and exciting activities have attracted adventure-seekers, birders and wildlife watchers, students, and families. The 500-acre reserve is located in Chilamate, a key location along the Costa Rican Bird Route, and its towering Almendro trees are some of the few remaining habitats of the endangered Great Green Macaw. As one of Costa Rica's pioneering ecolodges, Selva Verde is committed to a sustainable future for Sarapiquí and proudly carries Costa Rica's Certification for Sustainable Tourism.
