Please keep in mind:

The biodiversity you heard in the media; it is all here!

After knowing your specific interests, your Travel Specialist will make sure to include the best places to vacation in Costa Rica. Costa Rica is one of the most bio-diverse places on earth.  Although wildlife spotting is never guaranteed, it is common to get to see toucans, macaws, monkeys, sloths, crocodiles, frogs and butterflies during a vacation in Costa Rica.  Moreover, your Guides will know where to find dozens of species.

Your Guides are what make our wildlife observations extraordinary.  Our guides know where there have recently been sightings of rare or endangered species.  See the most important nesting place for Atlantic Green Turtles in the Western Hemisphere.  It's all done from a safe distance, so as to not disturb the nature we're privileged to see
