Costa Rica has quickly become a popular birding destination. The abundance of birds and other wildlife in Costa Rica is due to the incredible habitat diversity, and its location as part of the land-bridge between North and South America. Over 800 species of birds have been recorded within Costa Rica’s borders.
From the mangroves, marshes, rivers and dry forest of the Pacific coast to the mid-elevation rainforest of the Caribbean foothills and high into the elfin cloud forests and paramo of Cerro de la Muerte, our search for new species will be fun and exciting.
Visiting these three diverse habitats, we hope to find Bay-headed Tanager, Rufous Motmot, Snowcap, Black-crested Coquet, Fiery-throated Hummingbird and, of course, the revered Resplendent Quetzal.
NOTE: This trip can be combined with our PANAMA: Islands and Highlands Tour April 15 – 23, 2017
