We begin our tour in the lush rainforests of the Caribbean Lowlands, especially fantastic for hummingbirds & tanagers. We then explore the lagoons and forests of Lagarto, followed by the cloudforests of the Talamanca Mountains, home to the Resplendent Quetzal, arguably the most beautiful bird in the world, plus Emerald Toucanet and a dazzling array of hummingbirds. Moving down into the tropical forests of Carara on the Pacific coast we will search for a wonderful range of trogons, woodcreepers, manakins, tanagers and other species which should include the dramatic Scarlet Macaw. Moving north, we will explore the wetlands of La Ensenada Wildlife Reserve before climbing back up to the mountains once again for our final nights at the base of Arenal Volcano.
