Costa Rica is teeming with exotic wildlife with lush rainforests populated with everything from exuberant monkeys to menacing crocodiles; sloths slinking in the shadows and jungle pathways misted with brightly patterned butterflies. Make sure you cast your gaze up to the treetops, though, because the country is also home to an incredible kaleidoscope of birdlife.

Bird watching is a hugely popular activity in Costa Rica and with over 850 species of birds crammed into such a small geographical area, it’s easy to see why. The diversity of birds is thanks to the varied habitats spanning the small country – the cloudforests of Monteverde; the verdant lowlands of the Osa Peninsula and the Talamanca Mountains, Central America’s tallest range, offer up everything from the elegant Jacamar to the striking yellow–chested Keel-billed Toucan.
