During any of our nature observation expeditions, you will be accompanied by one of our professional and very experienced naturalist guides that will help you spot those creatures that otherwise, you would have just passed by without noticing. We stay away from the crowded places, so you have more chances to see things and away from the beaten path
Costa Rica has a prime location for birdwatching. With over 900 species of birds, which more than 600 are residents, most of other are migrant species than come generally from North America. This is a higher number than the United States and Canada combined. Costa Rica has the highest density of birds than any other country in the American continent, all in an area no more than 51, 100 km2, and located right in the middle and forming a bridge between North and South America. Like hummingbirds? More than 40 of them. Parrots and parakeets? Over 20. Toucans? 6. You name it, come and add some new birds to that life bird list.
Not everything in Costa Rica are birds, we also have almost 250 different species of mammals, from whales and dolphins, to the majestic Jaguar, king of our jungles. 4 species of monkeys that is possible to see on the same trip, Howler’s, White faced-Capuchin, Squirrel and Spider monkeys. Coatis, agoutis, sloths, ant eaters, etc.
To all the above, add thousands of insects, butterflies, trees, palm trees, heliconias, and more. As you go from one national park to the other, you will also have the opportunity to learn, first hand, about the different agricultural products grown and their impact on the protected areas and the communities around them and the local economy.
