More Details About this Trip:

Premier Local Guides

Most participants on our classic Costa Rica birding tour find 350 to 400 species.

Some of the key species we find on this tour include Resplendent Quetzal, Volcano Hummingbird, Coppery-headed Emerald, and Fiery-throated Hummingbird.

Costa Rica birding is so competitive that our longer tours remain a great value year after year.

The long eco-tourism in the country has also meant that a good number of well-educated and talented local guides lead our birding tours.  We do focus on premier local guides – some of the best in Costa Rica.
