Vista Bahia sits on one side of a peninsula ridge that juts out into the bay with its peak divided between our property and the adjacent, yet to be developed property. Our property faces east looking out into the bays waters. On this peninsula hilltop are primary trees which are used by a howler monkey troop for sleeping and nesting at night. Our room buildings are about midway down this ridge which at its highest point is 60 meters high.


The Hilltop trail allows a hiker to access this hilltop through the trees with vistas out to the bay below. The trail is new and cut into the hilltop earth and at present is a bit crude but still offers a great morning hike.


The hilltop trees are home to our local howler monkey troop that sleep in nests they build each night when they are foraging in the area. This foraging is dependent of the flowering of our local trees or the beginning of leaf formation when the young leaf shoots are most tender. Since howler monkeys diet consist solely vegetarian, the continued protection of the forest is critical to their visits.


This hillside forest has been undisturbed and offers a hiker a stroll with distant views out to the bay and surrounding mountains and volcanoes in the distance. As we continue to develop this site, we hope to build more perches which are steel platforms suspended on a rock pillar, thrust up into the treetops but access from the sloping hill. This allows birders and nature lovers to see a birds view or more importantly, the monkeys vantage point. Sunset can also be seen from this vantage point but its view is a bit restrictive until we complete additional viewing platforms.
