Do you want a piece of advice? Try to include a tour to the Mangroves or the Marsh Lands. The best way to see wildlife in Costa Rica is taking a tour to these places. They are like enormous nurseries where you get to see an incredible amount of birds, but also reptiles, monkeys, sloth etc. You can either do it on a pontoon boat with an expert naturalist guide or for a more quiet and close to nature experience, we recommend kayaks, you can find them in several hotels and lodges around the country.
Also local operators usually offer this one day tour in areas like Manuel Antonio National Park, Caño Negro Wildlife Refuge, Tortuguero National Park and Tamarindo Mangroves to name a few. Sierpe River at the edge Corcovado National Park is one of the biggest Mangroves in Central America.
These tours are excellent for families, small children enjoy staying on a boat and at the same time to be able to see all this wildlife, almost no hiking is involved and the rewards are enormous.
