TOURS-LATIN AMERICA & WORLDWIDE
Nature & Culture - hand in hand


Costa Rica is a small country, located between Nicaragua and Panama with coasts on both the Caribbean and Pacific. It has been a birdwatcher's dream since a long time because only a few places in the world boast of so many different birds in such a small area. 

Costa Rica is home to around 900 different species of birds and this number is increasing. The diversity of species is due to the variety of geography and habitats including high mountains, valleys, extensive lowlands, lakes, estuaries, gulfs and mangroves. Our tours contain a fine example of sites and species visiting the Caribbean lowlands, the volcanoes and mountains as well as the Pacific Coast reserves and national parks.

Besdie birds you will surely see on any Costa Rican tour several different species of mammals, exotic wildflowers, plethora of colourful butterflies and incredibly rich, lush vegetation at very attractive landscape. What is more, Costa Rica is perhaps the safest country in the whole Central American region, people are friendly and ecotourism has decades long history. 

We made our first trip more than a decade ago as well and since then we have organized and led several very successful tours from general wildlife tours through specific birding till photography tours. We have visited almost all major and more hidden areas of Costa Rica during the years and can offer various, tailor-made itineraries for individuals or groups as well.

In fact Costa Rica is one of those dream destinations where it would not be too difficult to imagine to work or retire for any nature enthusiast! Check out the Trip Reports, pictures and seen species below!
