We are very fortunate at Selva Verde to have excellent naturalist guides, who share their knowledge and appreciation of the flora and fauna of the rainforest with our guests to provide a true connection with Costa Rican nature and culture. We would like to present our local resident naturalists Fabiola and Randy.
It is a pleasure for us at Selva Verde to introduce our new guide: Fabiola Hernandez.
