Costa Rica Photo Tour

The tour we do is really very simple - three carefully chosen destinations to maximize time in the field looking through our viewfinders.

The reason we visit these three hand-selected locations is because they offer the best possible opportunities to photograph Costa Rican birds & wildlife.

Itinerary Details

Each of the three locations offers premium photo opportunities for the sought-after species, such as Scarlet Macaw, Keel-billed Toucan, Resplendant Quetzal, Red-legged Honeycreeper, Wire-tailed Manakins and numerous hummingbird species, to mention just a few. The enormous species list goes on to include Baird's Tapir, White-faced Capuchin, Mantled Howler and Central American Spider Monkeys, Jaguar (rare), Ocelot, Puma, Margay, Jaguarundi. Red-eyed Tree Frog, White-nosed Coatimundi & Three-toed Sloth.
