Bijagua is one of our favorite areas in Costa Rica, and part of the reason is Donald Varela Soto, an incredible guide who owns Casitas Tenorio with his wife, Pip Kelly Varela.

Donald owns a private nature reserve on the road to Tenorio National Park, and we've been lucky to visit this beautiful place twice with Donald.

This Common Pauraque was doing a good job of hiding from us in the brush.
