Lush and verdant throughout the year, Costa Rica is a fantastic place to visit for the avid nature lover. This small Central American country holds some of the most productive ecosystems in the world. We will explore these ecosystems by visiting rainforests such as Carara Biological Reserve, Volcán Arenal, La Selva Biological Station, Braulio Carrillo National Park, and Tortuguero National Park; cloud forests such as Cerro de la Muerte and the Savegre River Valley; and dry forests such as Guanacaste. This is the best time for exceptional weather and to see active animals, including migrating hawks as they journey along the Continental Divide, the backbone of Costa Rica. We also seek Resplendent Quetzals, colorful trogons and tanagers, jeweled hummingbirds, charming manakins, boisterous macaws, giant crocodiles, sloths, monkeys, river otters, sea turtles, reptiles, bats, butterflies, and much more. Enjoy the friendly people and delicious food of Costa Rica at brilliantly situated lodges. We invite you to join us in exploring this Central American hotspot.
