    What to Expect
    With convenient facilities with roof, allowing us to enjoy a very different and unique way of the wonderful process of these insects.

    It can appreciate closely how the leaf-cutter ants cut the leaves with their jaws and move to the colony. During the tour, there is the opportuny to see how they grow fungus and surprisingly to see the real queen, normally in few cases almost impossible to see in the wildlife but with our system and colony is possible to see it. It´s very imprtant to mention the caste divisions and functions of these important insects.

    During one hour of learning about the society and model of the ants, their long way of transportation of the leaves, the importance of the queen and more, this amazing crossing through the life ants will marvelous to anyone. 

    At Operation Center Aguas bravas in Chilamate, Sarapiquí, it find the Zompopas Ants Colony, between 9 am to 4 pm.

    I really enjoyed Leo’s passion for the leaf ants. He had a great setup showing the colony and how it brings back leaves to the hive. It’s a eye opening experience.
