Carara Birdwatching Tour

Carara National Park

Carara National Park is definitely the best birding site in the central pacific of Costa Rica.

Located approx 1 ½ hours north from Manuel Antonio and Quepos. The geographic position of the area make its forest to be transition zone regarding the weather, where the tropical rain-forest meets the dry forest. This makes Carara to be a perfect spot for both rain-forest and some dry-forest species, gathering different habitats such as primary and secondary rain forest, gallery forest, thickets, grasslands, rivers and others, simply a must visit to any birder coming to Costa Rica.

The main target species at this park would be Scarlet Macaws, Antbirds, Tinamous, Trogons, Manakins, Motmots, Jacamars and many other unique or endemic costarican species.

Our birding adventure to Carara Park starts with an early pickup at your hotel in Manuel Antonio, as we drive north towards Carara we would make some strategic stops in order to find some special birding spots that we know.

To this tour you can add the visit to the Tarcoles River (2 hours birding along the river) upon your personal request.
