Early morning is the best time of day to see birds – this is when they’re the most active. Your guide will take you to the best spot for seeing this area’s rare species, and will pick a trail based on the time of year. You might end up hiking around the Arenal Volcano, a local reserve, or Arenal’s hanging bridges.

Your guide will have lots of experience looking for birds, and will bring a telescope so that you can get a closer look. Be ready with your camera! You never know what other wildlife you might see along the way.

Before you head back to the hotel you’ll stop for a picnic breakfast.

What to Bring

Tennis or hiking shoes, a water bottle, raincoat, comfortable clothes, bug spray, and a camera.

What's included

Guided tour, telescope, and a picnic breakfast.


Many of our tours and activities offer transportation pick up & drop off options from several locations and destinations. Options vary by tour, see “BOOKING REQUEST” for full details.

Traveler Comments

Very enjoyable. The guide was knowledgeable and the telescope he brought was excellent. I had hoped to see more birds, but that can't be guaranteed. The lunch was excellent and much better than advertised/expected. (The brochure said "boxed lunch" but we were served an excellent hot lunch.)

The guide (sadly,we are not sure to remember well his name) was really good at spotting birds and really knowledgeable. We really enjoyed this tour! The breakfast was also delicious

Tony was awesome, I would recommend him to anyone interested in birds, plants & nature. Very professional, great English, and the “soda” Tico breakfast was great!!! My favorite part of the trip
