Special Raptor Migration Tour

COME JOIN PACO ON AN AMAZING BIRDING ADVENTURE

Sept 21 - Oct 3, 2024

Observing the raptor migration in Costa Rica is a truly enchanting experience, where nature enthusiasts and birdwatchers are treated to a unique blend of tropical beauty and avian prowess. Costa Rica, situated at the crossroads of North and South America, serves as a vital corridor for the southern raptor migration, attracting a diverse array of species. As the birds soar above lush rainforests, expansive coastlines, and mist-covered mountains, observers witness a breathtaking dance in the sky. The iconic sight of hawks, eagles, and vultures riding thermals against a backdrop of vibrant foliage creates a vivid spectacle. The country's strategic location also provides an opportunity to witness not only the majestic residents but also transient raptors en route to their final destinations. The rich biodiversity and stunning landscapes of Costa Rica enhance the overall experience, making it a birdwatcher's paradise during the southern raptor migration.
