10 days / 9 nights
With almost 850 species of birds, Costa Rica has many years to be famous among expert birdwatchers. One of the reasons for the extraordinary variety of birds in Costa Rica is the great variety of habitats: rainforest, mangrove swamps, beaches, cloud forests, rivers, etc. The best thing is that any of these ecosystems, with their own species of birds are almost always within a short distance of each other. Fortunately Costa Rican birds are not shy and seeing them is relatively easy. On a specific day, depending on the season, location and luck, you may see several dozen species. Many of the tours are guided with bird study included and the country is well equipped with mountain and forest hotels that specialize in programs for bird watching. Many species of reinitas, mosqueros, vireos, bolseros, etc. migrate to Costa Rica every winter. You will also have the opportunity to see many impressive birds that relate to the tropics such as parrots, parrots, macaws, toucans, toucans and the elusive but legendary quetzal. However, there are many other equally impressive species in our skies, such as the momoto or silly bird, with its distinctive racket-shaped tail, oropendolas, which make amazing hanging nests and an incredible range of hawks and hawks. If you look for birds with colorful magicians, they have some of the most beautiful plumage; however, none of them are compared to the fast hummingbirds. You will not find a better place to observe birds than Costa Rica.
