The Chuchini Ecological Reserve is privately owned and family run. Several trails are available for independent birdwatching; be sure to get clear directions. Weekday visits (closed Tuesdays) are economical and recommended for birding due to Chuchini’s popularity with local crowds on weekends. Overnight stays, arranged independently or as part of a tour, allow access to trails during prime birding hours. Chuchini is only accessible by car during the dry season (July-Nov). Otherwise, boat transportation can be arranged with the owners in advance.
