Testimonials

I was enormously impressed with the potential of this reserve. Tananeos contains a remarkable array of birds and plants and consists of a mix of a regional/original growth riparian forest trees and dry and semi-humid original and secondary habitats.

Few large urban areas have such as wonderful natural area so close at hand. Tanaeos has the potential to be important for education, local and international ecotourism, and to provide considerable economic benefit to the surrounding community.

We recommend birding at Tananeos Natural Reserve where you can observe birds in the foothills of the Serranía Del Perija, 140 hectares of Tropical Dry Forest, with more than 200 species of Birds. Some of the highlights are the Swallow Tanager, Lance tailed Manakin, Scaled Piculet, and the Golden Winged Sparrow
