Valle Escondido is fortunate to have a spectacular view from the garden in front of the Night Tour, over the Pacific ocean. Visitors arriving early can enjoy complimentary popcorn as they watch the sunset over the gulf.
In addition, once the tour is over, Night Tour guests often wish to linger in the atmospheric open-air restaurant for dinner or drinks to complete their magical evening.

Hides during the day in bromeliads, but emerges at dusk. Usually seen at night, perched at low vegetation. Male produces a chuckling harsh trill.
May be active in day or night; eats invertebrates, fruit and carrion. Is a good swimmer; crosses streams by gulping air and floating across. Female gives birth to genetically identical quadruplets, which are susceptible to human diseases.
Migrates from October to April. Usually on or near ground in mature wet forest, or advanced second growth, but also forages on trails at dawn and dusk. When alarmed utters a quick 'pik pik.'
