The Osa Peninsula is well known as one of the world's best birding destinations.
Costa Rica may be the only country in the world to have so many bird species (830 species) and habitats accessible within such a small area. There are more species here than in all Canada, United States and North of Mexico together.
The Osa Peninsula - also known as the "last wild frontier" of Costa Rica - is home to approximately 400 species of birds.
With its 75ha of private reserve, El Remanso offers plenty of opportunities to spot your favorite birds. Hear the White Hawk crying out in the afternoon, the Scarlett Macaws flying over your cabin, the Toucans nesting in front of the restaurant or if you get up early you might see hummingbirds drinking from the morning dew. Beautiful colored Honeycreepers, Tanagers or the spectacular white crested coquette also figure among the species seen in our birding tours.
This Birdwatching tour takes you to a very interesting spot where 4 different ecosystems meet: a beautiful river creek, pristine rainforest, pasture land and the ocean, making it an ideal place for bird watching because of the merge of ambiances! Also, as you will go at the time of day when the forest is the most active (5.30 am), you are likely to see many more animals in addition to birds!
An afternoon Birdwatching tour is also available as well as an onsite property one upon request.
