Day 1: Monteverde Cloud Forest
You'll leave from San José area hotel and drive up into the lush green ridges of the Tilarán Mountains, home of the world famous Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve. The reserve and adjacent forested areas provide habitat for some of the world's most beautiful and fascinating birds: Resplendent Quetzal, Three-wattled Bellbird, Golden-browed Chlorophonia, Azure-hooded Jay, and Zeledonia, just to name a few. You will enjoy your stay all the more by spending two nights at one of the great Monteverde Area Hotel. (L,D)


Day 2: Monteverde Cloud Forest
You'll spend the day walking well-kept trails through the spell-binding beauty of tropical cloud forests, while seeking out the many unique and wondrous inhabitants, such as Black Guan, Prong-billed Barbet, Silvery-fronted Tapaculo, and Spangle-cheeked Tanager. Some time spent with flashlights after dark could reveal a Mottled Owl, Kinkajou, or Two-toed Sloth. (B,L,D)


Day 3: Carara Biological Reserve
Descending from the cool, misty mountains, you'll pass through dry forest life zones where we might spot White-throated Magpie-Jays, Rufous-naped Wrens, Lesser Ground-Cuckoos, or even Turquoise-browed Motmots before reaching your next destination: Carara Biological Reserve. The reserve marks the northern limit of Pacific lowland wet forest in Costa Rica and is home to Scarlet Macaws, Baird's Trogons, Fiery-billed Aracaris, Yellow-billed Cotingas, and Orange-collared Manakins -- as just a sample of the hundreds of possible species.
Your lodging for the next two nights will be at a hotel, situated just minutes from the reserve. (B,L,D)


Day 4: Carara Biological Reserve
You will have the entire day to bird the variety of habitats found in the area. In addition to primary lowland wet forest, you'll likely find some time to visit the mouth of the Tarcoles River to look for shorebirds and some mangrove specialties such as Mangrove Hummingbird, Mangrove Vireo, Scrub Flycatcher, and Panama Flycatcher. (B,L,D)


Day 5: Carara - Return to San José
You will have plenty more time to explore this bird-rich region of the country before having to return to San José, which is just 90 minutes away. (B)
