March 23 – 31, 2025: $8895pp

Join me on an exciting Costa Rica wildlife adventure! This popular tour takes us to some of the best places for wildlife photography in the entire country. We’ll seek out the resplendent quetzal and other birds in the highlands, colorful frogs, birds and mammals on the central Caribbean slope, and more mammals, owls, aquatic birds and large crocodiles on the Pacific coast. For the truly adventurous, the optional extension takes us to Corcovado National Park, the best place for wildlife in the entire country. This rustic Corcovado experience is truly unique among Costa Rica photo tours!
