The best locations to experience Costa Rica, the Birdwatching Republic
In the 5 great ecoregions we protect 119 000 acres of important ecosystems for the birds.

Though relatively small in size, Costa Rica is home to one of the highest levels of biodiversity in the world. Encompassing 5 birding zones and numerous micro-ecosystems, Costa Rican birds and wildlife are virtually on display in their natural habitat. Costa Rica is home to 920 species of birds, so whether in cloud forest, humid lowlands, arid mountain peaks, dry forests, mangroves, or coral reefs, birds and nature are highly accessible to visitors. Today, 27 percent of Costa Rica has been officially designated as protected land.

Best time: It is posible to go birding in Costa Rica during the whole year, but the migration periods: the Autumn migration from North America to South America (Aug-Dec) and the Winter migration, when the birds return to the North (Jan-May), are the best seasons to find higher numbers of resident as migratory species.
