Highlight of Our Trip!

Absolutely fantastic! Kenneth was our tour guide and he was super knowledgeable about local species and hotspots. We actually went out with him twice, once for a normal birdwatching and once for a nocturnal owl watch. We observed around fifty species between the two trips, including the big ones like the Resplendent Quetzal and Three-Wattled Bellbird and rarities like the Crimson-Collared Tanager. Definitely a must if you want a great birdwatching experience!
