Costa Rica has quickly become a popular birding destination. The abundance of birds and other wildlife due to the incredible habitat diversity, and its location as part of the land-bridge between North and South America, is astounding. Over 800 species of birds have been recorded within its 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 Streaked Antpitta, Bay-headed Tanager, Rufous Motmot, Snowcap, Black-crested Coquet, Fiery-throated Hummingbird and, of course, the revered Resplendent Quetzal.
“Simply wonderful to travel with Wildside Tours! Nowhere could you get a better combination of leaders than Glenn and Kevin! So much fun and productive, and we love the fact that they do not use tapes in the field but had oodles of birds just the same!” — Deedee B, NJ
