We will explore the hidden ecosystem resting inside the campus of the first public university in the country. You'll discover some amazing birdwatching, with several dozens of different bird species in the area and then we'll look for the small population of sloths living free on the campus' gardens.

Many times we will try some wild berries and smell all sorts of barks and flowers. We'll be talking about art, history, indigenous culture, and most of all, nature. This is a full senses experience so you will get to see, touch, smell, taste, and listen to nature thriving amidst our country's biggest city.

** Please bring your own face masks, we provide hand sanitizer. It's an outdoor activity in which we will comply with social distancing and safety measures all through the experience.

*** From May to November we recommend booking on the morning slot however the afternoons are also great

I think that since little I had this strange obsession with nature. Even though I grew on Downtown, I enjoyed so much every time that my dad took me to the farms where my uncles worked in the countryside. Luckily I had the chance to study biology at the University of Costa Rica, looking after getting out San José Downtown where I thought there wasn´t that much to see or do.

I couldn´t be so wrong back then. The Campus of the University showed me and my friends a different perspective, on how to look at my surroundings by GOING BEYOND what is overlooked at the first sight.

That's why we founded Oropopo Experience, a small collective to show the hidden jewels at San José and all around the country!

On our first stop, we will look for resident and migratory birds, lots of incredible insects and amazing flowers.
Then, we will see the largest indigenous stone sphere (which is world heritage) in San José.
Lastly, we'll visit the main campus where the sloths live freely and hopefully find some tasty berries.

This experience was worth it. I learned about the biodiversity that were present around UCR and also Costa Rica. Marcelo’s explanations about the flora and fauna that we saw were very detailed. I learned a lot from him. He seems were knowledgeable of what he is doing. I am happy I have booked this experience. I got to see two sloths and a lot of beautiful exotic birds.

This tour was pretty simple. Our tour guide showed us cool vegetation and a few animals around the campus. If you like plants, you should take this tour. Also, there was some neat historical facts pointed out. It was raining when we went, so that put a little damper on things, but our guide made the most of it!

I had an amazing time on the tour with Pedro. I was the only person booked for the tour, and I worried that it may be cancelled for this reason, but Pedro was still happy to do the tour just for me. My taxi was delayed and I arrived ten minutes late but this was no problem for my host. I had a very informative and very thorough tour, seeing so many different insects, birds, flowers and of course the beloved sloths. Pedro really cared about my experience and wanted me to have a great tour. I would recommend this tour to anyone.

Marcelo and his colleague were very friendly and approachable and were able to answer all our questions about nature and animals. We took an exploratory walk through two campus parks and saw birds and sloths and also learned about some botanical features. Marcel had two pairs of binoculars with him so we could see all the animals up close. If you like animals and nature, this is a hidden gem in the middle of the city.

Excellent experience especially if you love nature and information. Pedro was an excellent guide. He was so knowledgeable with the plants, trees, animals, culture, and history. He had a great eye for finding various wildlife including sloths 🦥 furthermore, he was so friendly, communicated very well, and was able to answer questions I had. Definitely worth checking this out!
