Birdwatching in Costa Rica

  • Costa Rica is famed for its rich bio-diversity and is home to 6% of the world's plant and animal species. With diverse landscapes to explore; verdant rainforest, lush mangroves, lava fields and serene cloud forests and unrivalled wildlife it is truly a nature lover's paradise.

    For keen birders, we have designated a number of departures that will be accompanied by a specialist bird-watching guide. Over 850 bird species have been recorded in Costa Rica - higher than anywhere in North America, Europe and Australia, and on these special departures walks and visits to national parks will be led with the intention of seeing as much bird life as possible.
