Day 1: Birdwatching in Monteverde Cloudforest Reserve
The Monteverde Cloudforest Reserve is the perfect place to view varieties of Costa Rica's famed birds. During your morning birding tour, your guide will help you spot up to 350 species of birds that live in the Reserve. While hiking through the pristine cloudforest, you have a chance to see such unique birds as the quetzal, toucan, wood creeper, flycatchers, orioles and grosbeaks. With any luck you may see the three-wattled bellbird. A great tour for those travelers interested in learning more about the birds that call Costa Rica home.

Good to ideal period to travel, and many people choose to visit at this time.
Chance for unpredictable weather but with fewer visitors.
The trip was terrific with great planning on your part. Most of the adventures were not mainstream and somewhat off the beaten path which made it especially enjoyable!! We felt taken care of and you all were readily available to respond to questions and issues. I would highly recommend your company and friends have already expressed interest based on our pictures and excitement.
