This itinerary combines two of the most bird-rich areas of Costa Rica into one trip. We’ll start high up in the Talamanca Mountain Range picking up a variety of species that call these mountains home such as Resplendent Quetzal, Long-tailed Silky-Flycatcher, Volcano Junco, and Flame-throated Warbler.

As we continue south, we will slowly work our way lower and lower in elevation. We’ll make stops in the San Isidro Valley and at San Vito before arriving in the Osa. While traveling down slope, we hope to find species such as Turquoise Cotinga, Speckled Tanager, Orange-collared Manakin, Crested Oropendola, Ruddy Foliage-Gleaner, Costa Rican Swift, and many more.

Once we reach to Osa, we will be staying at the wonderful Danta Corovado Lodge. Highlights during our time in this incredible region could include Fiery-billed Aracari, Golden-naped Woodpecker, Black-hooded Antshrike, Black-cheeked Ant-Tanager (endemic), and Yellow-billed Cotinga.

Our final stop will be at the famous Carara National Park. This area is well known for its incredible diversity and is sure to add to our already incredible bird list. Highlights here could include Mangrove Hummingbird (endemic), and a variety of trogons, motmots, antbirds, woodcreepers, flycatchers, and much more!
