Once again, BVAS invites you as novice, casual and life-list birders to our Second Costa Rica trip!We have teamed up with Costa Rica Sun Tours to bring to you a trip designed to hit at least 3 key birding hot spots (different from our January 2017 Program).
While birds are our main aim, with a little more time at each destination, we will be able to explore the biodiversity of each area. Our goal is to explore the waterways of the Caribbean lowland (Tortuguero) to the Caribbean foothills (Rancho Naturalista) to the Cloud forests of Monteverde. Along the way, we will see orchids, frogs, turtles (maybe) monkeys, iguanas, butterflies, sloths, bats and crocodiles. Summer is a great time see Humming birds up close and personal.
We have arranged to have an excellent local Costa Rica birding guide with us on all of our adventures. He/she will have scope available. In addition, at critical places like Tortuguero we will be joined by a resident guide who knows the terrain well and can explain more about the National Park its rich bio diversity, which is one of the most complex ecosystems in Tropical America. research taking place and of course will help us to find some cool birds.
The itinerary includes most meals, all park entrance fees, boat tours, and of course hotels. With a bit more time in each place we will have time to relax, shop and connect with the rich bio diversity of Costa Rica.
Rate based on a maximum group size of 8 trip participants and double room occupancy $2970. Single room supplement is $545.
