Costa Rica Birding Highlights

  • Costa Rica has the longest standing tradition of eco-tourism services in the Americas.  Numerous opportunities for lodging close to excellent birding cross most of the country, proving easy birding starts close to each nights stay.

  • Most participants on our Costa Rica birding highlights tour find 275 to 325 species.
     

  • Some of the key species we find on this tour include Resplendent Quetzal, Great Curassow, Ornate Hawk-Eagle, and Great Potoo.

  • 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.
