Costa Rica Birdwatching Tours
With more than 20 years’ experience in ecotourism, Wildbird Tours offers tailored tours for bird watchers in Costa Rica. We are a company made up of people who love birds and nature, offering expert and detailed advice to help you find the best places for birding. We organise lodging, transportation, meals, guides, entrance fees and anything else you may require, customising your trip at no extra cost to make sure you find everything on your list.
Costa Rica is considered to encompass the largest biodiversity of any country on Earth, with as much as 4% of species on the planet. It is home to as many as 500,000 different birds, mammals, amphibians, reptiles and insects, of which hundreds are endemic to the country. With more than 900 bird species recorded, of which 600 are resident and 7 are endemic, it is one of the best places to find Resplendent Quetzals and other Trogons, Scarlet Macaws, Toucans, Motmots, Mangrove Hummingbirds, the huge Jabiru and the national bird, the Yigüirro or Clay-coloured Thrush.
Birds are our priority, but they are just the beginning of what Costa Rica has to offer. That’s why we provide you with a complete experience with many of our exotic forest dwellers such as White-headed Capuchins, Mantled Howlers, two species of Sloth, White-nosed Coatis, Crocodiles, Poison Arrow Frogs and the abundant butterflies and insects that reside in the lush tropical forests.
If your passion is the same as ours, we invite you to join us in this adventure.

Joe was born in Canada. After careers in engineering and marketing, Joe followed his life-long love for nature and opened The Wild Bird Store in Calgary. The business catered to all levels of nature enthusiasts from the backyard feeders to the serious globetrotting birders. In 1995, the business expanded into birdwatching tours. Joe and Alfredo began their partnership at that time and continue to run successful trips together to Costa Rica and Panama.
