TOUR DESCRIPTION
Day One:
Bring your binoculars! At dawn, on your first day, you will discover the birds of Finca Rosa Blanca and the surrounding coffee farms with our naturalist guide. In the highlands overlooking Costa Rica’s Central Valley, Finca Rosa Blanca is fortunate to be surrounded by a diverse collection of resident wildlife within a tropical ecosystem. We have spotted more than 130 species such as; Crimson Fronted Parakeets, Lesson’s Mot-Mots, Rufous-naped Wren, the endemic Costa Rican Ground Sparrow, Montezuma Oropendolas, and Laughing Falcons among others.
After a cup of our freshly roasted shade-grown organic coffee and hearty breakfast on our open-air restaurant terrace, you will hike with our naturalist guide through a high-altitude lush cloud forest up to Barva Volcano which is 2,906-meters / 9,534 feet at its summit. Barva Volcano is a series of mountainous ridges and a crater lagoon where exuberant wildlife can be spotted, including resplendent quetzals. Forested natural hiking trails wind through this western sector of Braulio Carrillo National Park, which contains a primary ecosystem that has existed in the area since ancient times.
Day Two:
On your second day you will join us on a tour to the Carrara National Park where Scarlet Macaws can be seen winging through the trees in pairs. Relatively small in size (4,700 Hectares), the significance of Carrara National Park stems from its geographical location in a transition area between the tropical dry forest region to the north, and the more humid pacific rainforest to the south. Carrara has flora and fauna from both ecosystems and the virgin rain forest that covers most of the park is the ideal environment for such rare wildlife as the Scarlet Macaw, the Fiery-billed Aracari and three species of monkeys.

In the afternoon, you’ll embark on a calm, open-air float trip down the Tárcoles River to see one of Costa Rica’s largest species: the American crocodile. Experience the biodiversity of the Pacific Coast mangroves, and navigate down the river where you may catch sight of native, migratory, and coastal birds including the rare Scarlet Macaws, Mangrove Hummingbirds, Mangrove Warbler and American Pygmy King Fisher

Please note that national parks and attractions may be closed on certain days during the week. Therefore, Day One and Day Two of this Birders Paradise package may be interchanged on the dates of travel, pending availability and weather conditions.
