Birding Tour with a Naturalist and Bird Expert


The early bird gets the worm! The morning starts at 5:30 am (3:30 pm afternoon tour) when we scoop you up at your hotel. Your birding experience begins after a short drive to Punta Quepos Trails Private Property. Away from the main tourist trails, this spot is popular among local bird watchers and naturalist tour guides. Our local birding tour is designed for birders with any level of knowledge, from an enthusiastic beginner to a serious professional birder and ornithologist. We focus on the species and objectives that our clients want to see. All our bird guides are 100% certified to educate and share all knowledge about local species (some endemic to Costa Rica). We will spend 3 complete hours birdwatching and evacuating any questions you may have about birds in Costa Rica.
