Quetzals, Humpbacks & Tapir
Our quest for not only a good location in Costa Rica to see Tapir, but also how to organise the day by day activities, has been a long but enjoyable one for Wildlife Trails. There are many companies who talk about ‘the chance’ to see Tapir, but 90% of the time you are going to be disappointed. We realised that the Osa Peninusula was one of the best places to see Tapir in Costa Rica, but without our clients pre-booking specific wildlife trails with expert guides, their chances would still be quite low. So, this tour not only gives you the best chance to see Tapir when visiting Costa Rica, but also includes some amazing Humpbacj, Dolphin and Quetzal action enroute. Enjoy the ride!

EARLY MORNING WALK WITH EXPERT GUIDE FOR THE QUETZAL
San Gerardo de Dota is home to a large population of one of the most beautiful birds in the Americas, the Resplendent Quetzal. From the Trogoniade Family and sacred bird to the ancient indigenous cultures, Quetzals have a peaceful and tranquil living in the area and reside here year round. The climate and good amount of food (Aguacatillo tree) provide a great habitat for these birds.

4 DAYS LOOKING FOR TAPIR AND OTHER AMAZING WILDLIFE
If you could pick any Costa Rica jungle lodge to stay at for 6 days when your focus is mammals and ‘more open’ photography opportunities then it is 100% certain that the chose would be Casa Corcovado Jungle Lodge; located on the stunning and mammal rich Osa Peninsula. For this tour, we include two full day visits by boat to Sirena Park station. This trail, which is not included by many companies, provides you with one of the best chances to see Tapir anywhere in Costa Rica!
