THE REFUGIO EXPERIENCE
With a small coffee plantation growing beneath the jungle canopy, the coffee served at Refugio Los Volcanes is brewed from coffee beans grown, harvested and oven roasted at the sanctuary.
Hiking opportunities for all are plentiful with a vast network of trails. Our resident pathfinders can help you explore the different habitats and wildlife within the 283 hectare sanctuary
With over 270 species of birds registered in the sanctuary, Refugio Los Volcanes has long attracted leading ornithologists and bird enthusiasts.
The clean air, absence of light pollution and spectacular surroundings, make Refugio Los Volcanes one of the best star gazing locations in Bolivia. The Milky Way is often clearly visible and with a bit of luck you can see shooting stars.
