Nowadays, there are more than 10000 bribris living in Costa Rica, which are an ethnic group that spread across the country and settled down before the Spanish colonization. Their habitat is composed of little villages with a few inhabitants as their main objective is being self-sustainment and they appreciate loneliness but, at the same time, they actively fight for nature’s protection and the introduction in the reservation of extinct fauna and flora species such as iguanas.  

Visiting these reservations is unforgettable as they let you enjoy the purest Costa Rican culture and discover the relationship among locals and nature. It is a unique experience that will make you understand the real Pre-Columbian Costa Rican culture, and, moreover, it will show you how this culture has been influenced now and then.

Do not lose the chance to discover the Bribri customs and culture as well as their hunting methods or particular houses that will let yourself surprised by this indigenous religion.
