Hitoy-Cerere Biological Reserve

This national reserve, located south of Limon in the Talamanca Mountain Range, features dense rainforest and many rushing rivers. Its name comes from the indigenous words “hitoy”, which means “wooly”, and “cerere”, which means “clear” – literally meaning a place of clear rivers with thick wooly moss.

The Hitoy-Cerere Reserve is part of the La Amistad Caribe Conservation Area, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The hot and humid habitat is home to many endangered species.
