This Guanacaste nature reserve is located north of Palo Verde, and is particularly noted for the number of insect species it has, making it a special place for entomological research. The Lomas de Barbudal Reserve includes diverse habitats of savannah, riparian forests, primary forest and deciduous forest. There are rivers with quiet pools suitable for swimming. A notable element of the landscape are the Gold Trumpet Trees (“Corteza Amarilla”) that flower a brilliant golden yellow colour during the dry season, especially in March. Howler and white-faced Capuchin monkeys, deer and many birds are examples of Barbudal wildlife
