Whit this birdwatching vacation package, we have this bird cover on our trip. Even so, we cannot promise that you can see it for sure. That is one of the birds on the “hard to see list”.

Those are the two best spots in La Fortuna where you can have a chance to observe them.

Those packages can be added before or after the Umbrellabird package. Then, we adapt the entire program for you.
