Activity Level:


At the last count, Costa Rica was home to 923 different species of bird, the greatest density of bird species of any continental American country, thanks to the wide range of habitats, from mountains to mangrove swamps. The very names are enough to mark this little country out as a mecca for birdwatchers: from the Scale-crested Pygmy-Tyrant and the White-bellied Mountain-gem to the Streak-breasted treehunter and the Latticed-Tailed Trogon!

Our tour has been designed to cover a range of habitats and therefore offer the chance to see as many different birds as possible, from the highlands (home to the iconic Resplendent Quetzal) to the lowland Caribbean region and the Pacific coast. We begin by touring two National Parks in the mountains where we will see a huge range of birds, including many endemic to the region, with every chance of spotting the dazzling Resplendent Quetzal. Moving on to the Rancho Naturalista, Costa Rica’s premier birdwatching hotel we will see many different species of hummingbirds, some without even moving from the comfort of your own balcony. Moving on to Sarapiqui we will discover many of the birds that favour the Caribbean lowlands, and we conclude in the dry forest and coastal habitats of the Pacific coast.

A local bird-watching expert will accompany us and take us to the best possible spots for observing a great variety of species.

Tour highlights:

  • Watching hummingbirds feed on your own hotel balcony
  • Exploring some of Costa Rica’s top National Parks
  • A variety of different habitats
  • Early morning boat trip on the Tárcoles River
  • Birds, birds and more birds!
