Imagine yourself surrounded by the verdant glory of a spectacular rainforest, the beautifully fresh breeze kissing your cheeks, a symphony of a hundred different birds flooding the world around you with song. This fantasy will become reality for you when you book a Birding Tour through the Naranjito Forest during your stay in Manuel Antonio!
This is the perfect adventure for birders and those who want to devote a day to truly experiencing the beauty of Costa Rica’s rainforests. Your private, personalized tour will be one you’ll never forget.
When you arrive in the town of Quepos, your transport will take you to the start of your hike in the Naranjito Forest. This transitional rainforest is a wonderland of biodiversity, with rich and vibrant flora surrounding you as you walk. Trees can grow to almost 100 feet tall, towering into the lush canopy above and embracing the other varied vegetation below.
Let the sights and sounds of the jungle wash over you as you walk through the trees. You’ll be encircled by the unique plants native to Costa Rica, such as vivid hibiscus flowers and stunning orchids growing in their natural environments. You may even catch sight (or smell) of the pungent yet entrancing Dutchman’s Pipe - the largest flower in the country.
While you may catch a glimpse of many types of rainforest animals during this excursion, there’s a reason we call it the Birding Tour. This stretch of the Naranjito Forest is home to at least 250 different species of feathery aviators, making it a birder’s paradise.
Be on the lookout for iconic and playful black-mandibled toucans, particularly visible during their mating season when they begin to throw fruit to one another!
Witness the keen-eyed short-tailed hawk soar above, then fall fast and heavy onto an unsuspecting lizard for its lunch. Keep your binoculars at the ready to catch sight of the rapidly beating wings of some of Costa Rica’s most beautiful hummingbirds, such as the purple-throated mountain gem or the white-necked jacobin.
Every Naranjito Forest Birding Tour is unique, with birders spotting up to 70 species in a single day. Other flying friends you might catch sight of include doves, trogons, shrikes, plovers, parrots, woodpeckers, and so many more.
