The Rainforest Bird Watching Hike begins just after daybreak. Your expert guide will take you through old cacao plantations and up into the rainforest. After a couple of hours of hiking and experiencing the early morning jungle, you will arrive at the campsite where you may observe birds at your leisure while your guide heats up and serves a delicious, typical Costa Rican breakfast. After breakfast you will hike through primary forest in search for the birds that forage in this particular habitat.
The dense forest provides unlimited hiding places, and birding here is definitely hard work. With a little luck, you will be rewarded with sightings of some of the more illusive birds such as: trogons, motmots,antshrikes, manakins, tinamous, curasows and others.
