This are our popular birding outings in 3 different geographical areas of Costa Rica. Each tour includes different habitats and species (well, except for the more generalistic ones like Tropical Kingbird!). The fact that each one is 8 nights, is much appreciated by folks who might not have the chance to take a longer period of time to be away...but if you do, all 3 (the "Grand Tour"), or even 2 programs can be lumped together for longer visits! Please look at the overview of each excursion:
The introduction. Become familiar with some of the main tropical bird families. Look for highly priced species like Scarlet Macaw, Great Curassow and Resplendent Quetzal.
Central Valley, Arenal area, Central Pacific Transition Forest, Tarcoles River, Savegre Valley, Highland Paramo and more!
The best way to get started!
The quest for the endangered ones !.
Explore the Tropical Dry Forest and Mangrove estuaries of the Nicoya Gulf, Caño Negro Wetlands and Rain Forest at La Selva Biological Station. Mangrove Hummingbird, Jabiru and Great Green Macaw are some of the highlights of this trip.3 comfortable boat tours are part of this program.
