The Ara Project had been located in Alajuela for years but were recently served an eviction notice. They eventually found a new home on Punta Islita and have been working hard to get a new breeding centre and release site up and running. They are anticipating a “reveal” with a new website on 15 Dec, 2013.
The good news for miles & points collectors is that the nearest hotel, Hotel Punta Islita; to their new location is available with Marriott Reward points. It’s a beautiful property and a great place to take the whole family as there are plenty of activities to occupy those who are less interested in bird watching.
