Los Inocentes

Fluxnet Information
Site Name: Los Inocentes
Description: Los Inocentes is a former 7000ha beef cattle ranch that reduced to a 1000ha dairy cattle ranch and now is both an ecotourist lodge and center for conservation and ecological research. It is located adjacent to the Guanacaste Conservation Area. Due to its location it supports a complex array of flora and fauna with affinities to the dry Pacific climate to the west, the wetter Atlantic climate to the east and the cooler lower montane climate of the Central Cordillera. Los Inocentes suffered extensive deforestation in the 1950s, however, transitions in land management practices since then have resulted in extensive areas of forest regeneration.
