GROUP ESCORTED TOUR

ABOUT THE TOUR

This tiny country strategically positioned on the migration route for the Americas boasts over 800 species of bird including some of the most eye-catching in the world. The forests drip with tanagers and warblers and echo to the exotic utterances of Montezuma Oropendolas while whole new families of birds can be discovered such as foliage-gleaners, antbirds and woodcreepers. Perhaps the most memorable are the iridescent hummingbirds which whiz around like large insects, pausing only to feed from nectar-producing flowers. High in the trees, fabulously colored trogons might be spotted along with the aptly named Resplendent Quetzel.

We will be exploring a number of key habitats from cloud forests to coastal plains, taking time to enjoy and savour the riches on offer. Our accommodation has been chosen for comfort, quality and location and we will be assisted by Paco Madrigal, one of the finest guides in Costa Rica.

Day 1

London / San Jose

San Jose | Costa Rica | Ultimate Travel Company

Depart London Gatwick at 11.05 hrs on a British Airways direct flight to San Jose arriving at 16.50 hrs. On arrival, transfer to the Buena Vista Hotel for the first night. Buena Vista is a delightful, perfectly situated boutique hotel near to the International airport, located in the lush mountains of Alajuela with incredible views of the volcanoes Poas, Barva and Irazú, the central valley, tropical forest and coffee plantations. No doubt we will encounter our first birds in the garden such as Greater Kiskadee, Brown Jay, Blue-gray Tanager and Rufous-tailed Hummingbird, amongst others. The mature trees can attract the very impressive Pale-billed and Linneated Woodpeckers along with our first Keel-billed Toucans.
