Extensive Birdwatching Tour in Costa Rica
This 21-day Costa Rica Birding tour will guide you through the unique birding ecozones and top hotspots in Costa Rica with an emphasis on hummingbirds and the opportunity to see over 400 bird species in this three-week birding adventure, plus many other wildlife.
This unique Costa Rica birding tour will take you across the Northern plain to the stunning Arenal Volcano, the Sarapiqui lowlands and the famous biological station, Turrialba the Snowcap mecca in the foothills of the Caribbean Slope, the Talamanca highlands home of the strictly beautiful Resplendent Quetzal, the Central and Southern Pacific Lowlands showered by the Pacific Ocean and the Northern Pacific Lowlands and volcanos, where the wetlands and dry forest specials await for you.
Costa Rica, though relatively small in size, is home to one of the highest levels of biodiversity in the world. Encompassing four birding zones and numerous micro-ecosystems, Costa Rican birds and wildlife are virtually on display in their natural habitat.
Costa Rica is home to more than 50 species of Hummingbirds, so whether in the cloud forest, humid Caribbean lowlands, arid mountain peaks, dry Pacific forests or mangroves, hummingbirds are highly accessible to visitors.
The country’s natural wealth is no accident. In the mid-20th century, Costa Rican leadership realized the importance of conservation for the future of the nation. Today, 27 per cent of Costa Rica has been officially designated as protected land and rather than devoting resources to developing a military, Costa Rican officials instead chose to build educational and social security programs. Despite the ensuing growth of tourism, the country remains peaceful, friendly and open.
Costa Ricans continue to exude appreciation and joy for the many treasures of their country.
