Costa Rica - Introduction to Neotropical Birding

With Texas Ornithological Society and Clay Taylor

January 7-17, 2024


If you’ve always wanted to go birding in Costa Rica, or never taken a birding trip abroad at all, this 11-day tour is a great introduction to the neotropical birds of Central America.

Join Clay Taylor and your Costa Rican guide in the Caribbean lowlands, the mountainous southern highlands, tropical dry forest, and humid southern Pacific rainforest to seek out species typical of the differing elevations and habitats. Our local birding guides are experts at identification by both sight and sound, and they’ll help ensure your group spots as many of the country’s 900-plus species as possible. Combine that with its accessibility and friendly people, and Costa Rica is a perfect destination for beginners and more advanced birders alike. Plus, you’ll discover wildlife like frogs, monkeys, bats, and sloths.
