The Zafra Reserve is a space to rest in a forest environment, with proximity to the Arenal River, the main tourist river of the municipality of San Rafael, “enchantment of crystalline waters”.
This reserve is located in the Camelias district of the Municipality of San Carlos, with access by the municipality of San Rafael, only 8 km from the municipal seat.
With an average temperature of 23 ° C and an altitude of 1100 meters above sea level, the reserve is located in a humid premontane forest zone and has a total area of 30 hectares, of which 26 hectares are dedicated to the complete conservation of the forest and 4 hectares to sustainable production activities, lodging and trails for visitors.
Zafra has been mainly the living space of a couple in love with life, respectful and careful of all the wonderful things that the territory offers us. Acquired the property in 2010, with the dream of transforming it into a space for life in harmony, where you could combine production for sustenance with conservation. And so, among diverse crops, fish ponds, small animals and a lot of reforestation, we began to forge what is now an ecotourism project where visitors have the opportunity to meet and enjoy in a place where production and protection combine without controversy between them.
