Finca San Antonio

High up in these misty mountains, pure water gushes out of the mountainside, providing drinking water to the Las Escaleras in Yasica Norte community and feeding the Yasica River basin. Thanks to the protection of the native cloud forests, the farm teems with wildlife with creatures such as are black panthers, jaguars, deer, collared peccary, coatis, agoutis, and birds such as the bellbird, quetzal, and goldfinches roaming the lands.
