Corazon del Bosque, Natural Reserve

Community Project, ¬†CORAZ?ìN DEL BOSQUE¬†

Is a Forest Reserve Cooperative. It is a part of a new wave of tourism known as “community tourism”, that the Association of Guadalupana initiated, which consists entirely of local residents of the village of El Novillero. The project is distinct because belongs to the community.

The associacion started this project in hope to protect the pine oak forest from deforestation and to provide the community with jobs and opportunities.  All the employees of Coraz??n del Bosque are from this community and they have sustainable forest management plan with the objective to maintain the forest and still use its products. There are also some reforestation projects.

Coraz??n del Bosque tries to work closely with the community, including the schools to promote a healthy and clean environment, not only for tourism, but for the coming generations of the community of El Novillero. The predominant trees of the forest are mostly conifers and oaks.

This Forest Reserve Cooperative offers different services to the tourists including rustic lodges, a restaurant, and a network of trails within the forest. These offer opportunities to observe northern Central American endemics bird species.
