Wildlife in Costa Rica

The wildlife in Costa Rica is abundant. Right here on our property at Ylang Ylang, there is so much wildlife to be seen. It’s common to see many iguanas, lizards, agoutis, birds, white faced monkeys, and howler monkeys roaming around the hotel. We try to keep Ylang Ylang as natural as possible so that the animals can continue to make it their home as well. We love having the natural wonder of animal life here at Ylang Ylang and our guests do too!
