If we had to take a pick of our company's favorite animal it would have to be one of the 850 different species of birds. Birding is a hobby that has become very popular over the years and Costa Rica is one of the best places on the planet to enjoy this hobby. Due to the small size of the country and how fast the climate and elevation change it makes for a birders paradise when trying to see many different species in a short amount of time. Our expertise in birding is what keeps us busy during the off season always looking for new areas of the country to enjoy the different species of birds. Our birding trips are operated privately in modern gasoline SUV’s. Our guides are some of the best guides around, and they do this with a passion and a love of birding. We invite you to take a look at a few sample itins. Understand that we can mix the itinerary up, and we can work on it till we find something that fits.
Take a look and if you want to see plenty of different species then this might be the trip for you.
