The variety of habitats packed into this small tropical country enable it to provide haven to more bird species than the entire continental United States.

And that’s just the birds! Butterflies, frogs, flowers, monkeys, coatis, peccaries, and other life forms all exhibit the exuberance of the tropics ~ which always makes me exuberant when I’m there!

We begin with Caribbean-slope rainforest. Poison dart frogs, hummingbirds, tanagers and aracaris will be among the subjects for our lenses ~ plus who-knows what else. (Seriously! So much unexpected wildlife to experience here!)

While in this region, we’ll spend time at a very special place set up especially for bird photography. There, image-friendly feeders  attract Collared Aracaris, Crimson-collared Tanagers, Green Honeycreepers and many other species.

In addition, I’ll bring along the full multi-flash hummingbird photography set-up so you don’t have to. We’ll have lots of fun photographing a variety of Costa Rica’s colorful and fast-flying hummers at the Nature Pavilion and our other destinations in-country.

The rest of our time on the Caribbean slope will be spent on the grounds of the Selva Verde Lodge (with the Sarapiquí River flowing just beside the lodge).

Next, we head to cloud forest, high into the Talamanca Mountains. There, we’ll photograph the Resplendent Quetzal, billed as the most beautiful bird in the Americas!

Of course, the quetzal is just one of the birds that live in the cool, misty cloud forest. We will also have a variety of hummingbirds (different species than we saw in the lowland rainforest), trogons, tanagers and more to keep us and our lenses occupied. 

Our final ecosystem is found in the wild jungles of the Osa Peninsula. Often quoted as “the second most biologically intense place on the planet,” only Peru’s Manu National Park tops the Osa for biodiversity.

The grounds of our ocean-front lodge — your cabana sits on a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean! — provide habitat for all four species of monkeys found in Costa Rica. The simians provide not only lots of great images, but plenty of great entertainment, too!

The trail cameras often record pumas, tyras and other elusive rainforest mammals. Easier to spot are the collared peccaries, Chestnut-mandibled Toucans, and Scarlet Macaws. Seeing the macaws fly over the blue Pacific is a sight you will not forget. Bring your headlamps as we will venture out after dark and see what else we can find ~ it’s a whole other world after dark in the tropics!
