Wildlife Tour Curi-Cancha


Choose your desired departure time when booking, then meet a guide at your Monteverde hotel for the trip to a birdwatching area for a 3- or 6-hour tour—possible destinations include the Tilaran Mountain Range, the cloud forest, or a local preserve.  Follow trails through habitat that supports 45% of Costa Rica’s bird species, watching for more than 450 individual species. One highlight of the forest surrounding Monteverde is the chance to see the brilliant plumage of a resplendent quetzal, and your naturalist guide will help you spot the greatest possible range of tropical birds. Other favorite birds include the blue-crowned motmot and the green-violetear hummingbird, whose metallic plumage can be spotted the length of Central America. Throughout your walk, take advantage of your time with a private guide to ask questions, explore the things that interest you most, and set your own pace, walking as fast or slow as you want. Following your time in the forest, this half- or full-day tour concludes with return transfer to Monteverde, and drop-off at your hotel.
