Wild Life

wildlifeFIReserva de Achiote is home to many small animals, reptiles, and interesting insects.  Our orchards provide food and the reserve a safe haven for them to live undisturbed. 

On any given day, you may see (and hear) howler, white-face, and spider monkeys; coaties, tayras, and agouties. There are sloths, but good luck spotting them—their

camouflage makes them almost impossible to see even when you are staring right at them!  Spotting the more elusive animals and watching the monkeys moving through the trees provides endless entertainment at Lattice House. 

All the photos of wildlife shown here were taken from the house decks or areas immediately surrounding the house, or in the reserve areas.
