Join our wildlife-watching group trip to Costa Rica as we explore this lush and abundant nation to enjoy its wonderful mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and incredible flora.

We start our 12-day tour by exploring Tortuguero. The beaches here are known for their turtles, yet the park is also an excellent place to see sloth, keel-billed toucan, mantled howler monkey and spectacled caiman. We then continue to the Talamanca Mountains, in particular the cloud forests of Los Quetzales National Park, where our aim is to observe the resplendent quetzal - arguably one of the most iconic birds of Latin America. 

We have arguably left the best until last, with a visit to Corcovado National Park, Costa Rica's premier wildlife destination. Home to more than 300 species of birds and over 100 species of mammals, every excursion here provides something new. Squirrel, howler and spider monkey, tree frog, silky anteater and scarlet macaw are just some of the species we hope to observe in the forests, and harpy eagle if we are lucky. The waters around Corcovado are also abundant with various species of cetaceans and turtles.
