Costa Rica Wildlife

In Costa Rica and Guanacaste Province, the new catchphrase is "Green is Gold." Great care has been taken to preserve and maintain one of the world's natural wonders and Costa Rica is at the forefront of sustainable, carbon offset, eco-tourism. Costa Rica has great natural wealth, about 5% of all the species worldwide, call Costa Rica home. As of now there are over 8500 species of plants, 220 species of reptiles, 160 species of amphibians, 205 species of mammals and 850 species of birds. Can you see them all? You can sure try with one of our Animal wildlife tours. In partnership with MINAE many of the animal rescue centers allow you to see and experience the wildlife up close and personal. Join us for a wildlife adventure of a lifetime and light up your social media with some great animal selfies!

Bijagua Sloth Search and Discovery

Experience one of Guanacaste’s greatest natural wonders: sloths in their native habitat. Plus a refreshing stop at the beautiful Cortez waterfalls along the way. Located just off the Pan American Highway, you will stop at the falls, where you can dip in the natural pool, sunbathe and relish the forest beauty and refreshing running spring water, abundant even in Costa Rica's dry season. Then comes the core adventure. Driving from the driest Guanacaste lowlands at the base of majestic active volcanoes, snaking between the giant Miravalles and Tenorio volcanos, you will cross the continental divide and enter into Bijagua. Bijagua means “two waters,” and is named after the influence of the climate and the rain on the area. This is a nature hikers' paradise, replete with the biodiversity for which Costa Rica is famous. And, of course, sloths abound. They're everywhere, hanging from the trees and branches, always "smiling." Usually, mothers will be carrying their babies. Bijagua also provides the perfect climate and rainforest environment for you to come upon exotic reptiles and frogs, like the Red Eyed Frog, Green-and-Black Poison Arrow Frog, Blue Jeans Frog and many other examples of tropical wildlife, as well. For sloth and wildlife lovers in general, put this on your “Must-Do” list while visiting Costa Rica. After all that hiking and spotting sloths and local fauna in your rainforest exploration, why not take a break and enjoy a complimentary traditional Costa Rica buffet lunch prepared by our local chefs and cooks.

Palo Verde Wildlife River Boat Cruise

The Palo Verde National Park tour in Guanacaste, Costa Rica is usually on everyone's must-see list when visiting the Guanacaste Region. Your day starts early as we pick you up from your hotel or condo and drive you to one of the rarest and bio-diverse ecosystems in the world. Recommended for those who seek wildlife and birdlife. Palo Verde comprises dry forest, wetland and mangrove swamps, which is an ideal habitat for Costa Rican crocodiles, monkeys, iguanas, parrots, and other exotic birds. The Palo Verde Tour carries you through one of the largest concentrations of waterfowl in Central America. After the tour enjoy a typical Costa Rica lunch at a local restaurant and then enjoy a short tour of the how pottery is produced in nearby villages. The Palo Verde National Park Riverboat Tour takes place along a stretch of the Tempisque River Conservation Area in Guanacaste Province, 30 km west of Canas, Guanacaste, Costa Rica. The surrounding region is mostly tropical dry forest, and the Park focuses on conserving vital floodplain, marshes, limestone ridges and seasonal pools from the encroachment of civilization to mitigate the risk to the ecology. A major feature is the density and variety of bird species, a substantial factor that led to the creation of the reserve, due in part to its diverse ecology: 15 different topographical zones ranging from evergreen forests to mangrove swamps. Birds spotted regularly in the park include Great Curassows, Scarlet Macaws, White Ibis, Roseate Spoonbills, Anhingas, Jabirus, and Wood Storks, among many others.
