Along the trails and areas of Arenal Natura Park a large group of leaf cutter ants (Atta cephalotes) works tirelessly day and night. Our guides will point them out and explain how this interesting group is organized.

These tiny insects play a very important role in the rainforest ecosystem, because they eliminate 80% of the leaf coverage, regulating the accumulation of dead leaves on the ground and permitting sunlight to pass through the forest.

Come see these tiny hard workers, you won’t believe just how incredible they are!
