JOIN US FOR 9 FULL DAYS OF BIRDING SOME OF THE BEST COSTA RICA HOT SPOTS
INCLUDING MONTEVERDE, ARENAL AND LA SELVA!
Carolina Bird Club is sponsoring this fantastic Costa Rica Bonus Trip with LifeBird Tours, LLC
This CBC bonus birding trip will take in some of the very best areas Costa Rica has to offer!
We will begin in the Pacific lowlands birding our way up to the cooler lush cloud-forests for 3 days of exciting birding in the Monteverde area which is home to the gorgeous Resplendent Quetzal! Next, we will move from the Pacific slope to the Caribbean and the habitat and avifauna will shift radically! We will be staying for 2 nights at the beautiful Arenal Observatory Lodge at the foot of the Arenal Volcano. Birding this area is always fabulous! Finally, we will descend into the Caribbean lowlands for a 3 night stay at the lovely La Quinta Lodge in the Sarapiqui River Valley. Here we will explore the rain forests of La Selva Biological Station which is one of the best birding sites in Costa Rica! We will also be visiting other key birding areas including La Virgen del Socorro, Cope’s famous feeders, the Old Butterfly garden and La Paz Waterfall Gardens. Please see CBC the detailed itinerary for more details!
We will visit hummingbird and banana feeders throughout the trip allowing for up close and personal study of hummingbirds, tanagers, finches and much more.
Professional bird guide Steven Easley will be our local guide for our trip, a highly respected authority on Costa Rican birds and other wildlife. We expect to see over 250 bird species with a good representation of Costa Rica’s hummingbirds, toucans, motmots, trogons, tanagers, oropendolas and much more.
This bonus trip is packed with excellent birding, lodging, and delicious food for a very good price! Join us as we explore the many wonders of Costa Rica! Interested birders please contact Sherry Lane for registration information!
