Costa Rica

For birders and photographers alike, the incredible avifauna of Costa Rica is certain to inspire. Accompanied by nature photography expert Krisztina Scheeff, you’ll have the opportunity to receive personal instruction during classroom sessions and field exploration, customized to all levels of experience and interest. Your journey spans a diverse range of ecosystems and elevations to spot some of the hundreds of bird species that call Costa Rica home: the Caribbean lowlands of the Sarapiquí Valley, the confluence of tropical dry forest and humid rainforest near the Pacific coast, and the cloud forests of the Talamanca Mountain Range. Experience all that Costa Rica birding has to offer, with a chance to bring your photography to the next level!
