Costa Rica Birds & Nature Small Group Tour

Wonderful 16 day bird watching tour, exploring some of Costa Rica's best wildlife locations

Costa Rica Birds & Nature Small Group Tour

On this wonderful 16 day Costa Rica Birds & Nature Tour, you will explore some of the best locations for birding and wildlife that this amazing country has to offer, while staying away from the over-populated and touristy areas. This itinerary includes the non-stop BA service from London Gatwick to San Jose and is being offered as a small group tour, but can also be tailor-made for independent travellers.

Though relatively small in size, Costa Rica is home to one of the highest levels of biodiversity in the world, but the country’s natural wealth is no accident. In the mid-20th century, Costa Rican leadership realized the importance of conservation for the future of the nation and today, 27 percent of Costa Rica is officially protected. The sheer diversity of its exotic flora and fauna is staggering, so whether you are exploring the cloud forest, humid Caribbean lowlands, arid mountain peaks, dry Pacific forests, mangroves or coral reefs, wildlife is highly accessible.

The small group tours have been an enormous success in 2017 and we will therefore be running them again on the following dates in 2018:
27th January – 11th February 2018
10th – 25th March 2018
11th – 26th April 2018

10th – 24th November 2018 (slightly different itinerary)
