Access point to biodiversity

The tour begins at the property in our private dock, starts on our path to the river bank for about 15 minutes, Here we can observe toucans, limpets, hummingbirds, mangrove hawks and many other species, once in the boat will provide safety indications, binoculars and the Costa Rican bird guide and we will start the tour through the riverbed or the mangrove according to the conditions of the tides. In this talk you will be given advice on the proper use of the equipment depending on the light conditions, angles and
movement.

The guide will take you through the different sectors of the river depending on the schedule and the preferences of the participants regarding the different species of birds and where to find them.

Our specialized photography tour will take you on an unforgettable journey through the riverbed of the Rio Grande de Tarcoles in search of impressive photographs of birds, plants, flowers, crocodiles, insects and, hopefully, some small mammals. This area is famous for being a biodiversity hotspot, so it’s not hard to find amazing photo opportunities.
