Bird Sanctuary

Close to 900 species of birds can be found in Costa Rica – an incredible amount for a country of such small size. At Arenal Observatory Lodge and vicinity, we’ve spotted more than 400 kinds of birds in our forest – making our Arenal hotel a renowned destination for bird watching in Costa Rica. Well–marked trails through primary and secondary rainforest and open pastureland on our 870-acre property offer plentiful birding opportunities. Some of the more spectacular birds include: Three-wattled Bellbirds, Crested Guans, Orange-bellied Trogons, White Hawks, Laughing Falcons, Red-lored Parrots, Green Herons, Squirrel Cuckoos, Great Potoos, Ruby-throated Hummingbirds, Chestnut-mandibled Toucans and Keel-billed Toucans. Here is a complete list of birds seen at Arenal Observatory Lodge.
