Red-Eyed Tree Frog2018 Costa Rica Tour: March 4 – 12, 2018

I’ll be returning to one of my favorite wildlife tour destinations in 2018: Costa Rica!

The Quetzals to Corcovado tour is a popular trip that features the very best of Costa Rican wildlife.  As we explore the roads and trails of the tropical rainforest we’ll encounter colorful birds, unique jungle mammals and even find some creepy crawlies to photograph.

Those who are really adventurous may join me on the extension to Corcovado National Park, the best place in the entire country for wildlife.
