Health & Safety Information
Costa Rica Rainforest Information
We do no recommend any special precautions for visitors with respect to tropical diseases. Naturally, the rainforest environment requires caution, walking the trails to avoid any dangerous encounters with wildlife. For this reason, we always recommend walking with a naturalist guide.
Mosquito borne illnesses such as malaria have never been an issue for any guest or staff at Selva Verde. Dengue fever is rare and the best prevention is to apply insect repellent and avoid hours of peak mosquito activity. If you have any further questions regarding health or safety information, please do not hesitate to ask your reservations specialist and feel free to review the resources below.
