Birdwatching and Jungle Tour in Monteverde at 5:30 PM

star-5

This 2:1 Tour is the only one in the country that combines a birdwatching tour with a jungle tour. Birding at dusk is great because that's when birds are going back to their nests to end their day. At El Bosque, the grounds are beautiful and the location is great for birding, especially on the gardens where the forest is younger and lower. Then it gets dark and other creatures come out on the trails of the property where the forest is more dense... And with a guide and a flashlight, the jungle adventure begins... Tour groups are small so you will see more and learn more, and with your tour guide and his spotting scope you will be taking some amazing pictures to bring back home. And when you finish the tour, you can ask for a map to come back the next morning to do more birding on your own and/or to explore the beautiful trail system at NO ADDITIONAL COST.
