Birding

Close to 900 species of birds can be found in Costa Rica, and more than 400 kinds of birds have been spotted around Arenal Observatory Lodge & Spa. Well–marked, well-maintained trails through primary and secondary rainforest, open pastureland, and hardened lava flows offer numerous habitats and birding opportunities. Some of the more spectacular local residents include: Three-wattled Bellbirds, Fasciated Tiger-Herons, Sunbitterns, Laughing Falcons, Red-lored Parrots, Great Curassows, Northern Jacanas, Steely-vented Hummingbirds and Keel-billed Toucans. Click here for a complete list of birds at Arenal Observatory Lodge.
