This activity is very special for people who want to really know the natural wealth that we find in Monteverde and in Costa Rica in general. The idea is to start at 6:00 am and move to the desired place, not without making a talk before walking, where points of interest are touched for the visitor. During the four hours of the tour it is possible to observe many birds of different species, in addition different animals are usually found, among mammals, reptiles or insects. Costa Rica is world famous for its rich biodiversity and even more for the abundance of birds found in it. This is a beautiful experience if you want to wake up in the forest surrounded by the wonders of nature and observing the jewels found in this beautiful place.

This 2:1 Tour is the only one in the country that combines a birdwatching tour with a jungle tour. Birding at dusk is great because that's when birds are going back to their nests to end their day. At El Bosque, the grounds are beautiful and the location is great for birding, especially on the gardens where the forest is younger and lower.

Birdwatching Experience

Birdwatching Experience

Today we see that birds have become part of a collective feeling, where people increasingly take greater interest in knowing each one of them. For this reason, I recommend my services, because if you want to know about the birds of Costa Rica they are in the right place, because Monteverde is considered a natural paradise. Its location is perfect for bird watching from both sides and many are attracted to the particular fruits provided by the cloud forest. With me you can learn about the wonders of nature. For example, the different songs that birds have, such as recognizing different species, the natural history of each place visited and of each animal observed. You can also learn to take a good picture, using a telescope and preferably using a cell phone. Monteverde is a tropical paradise, since it houses a lot of flora and fauna, so don't miss Monteverde!

Eduardo Venegas is an experienced tour guide with vast knowledge of the local Flora and Fauna. He has dedicated more than 20 years of his life to eco-tourism. His special interest is for the birds of Costa Rica and has spent many years in study and research of the wide variety of species which exist in this small country. He worked on the technical revision and photography for "An Illustrated Field Guide to Birds of Costa Rica", published by Incafo Costa Rica S.A. One of Venegas’ most recent and important researches is about the presence of the oilbird (Steatornis caripensis) in Costa Rica. The oilbird is a nocturnal bird rarely seen in Costa Rica. This specie is originally from South America and is the only nocturnal bird whose diet is based solely on fruits. Venegas has been studying the behavior, habitat and distribution of this bird in Costa Rica since 2010 in collaboration with INBIO (National institute of Biodiversity in Costa Rica) and MINAET.
