Birdwatching Tour at Mistico Arenal Hanging Bridges Park
From $72.00
Bring your binoculars on an early morning birdwatching tour at Mistico Arenal Hanging Bridges Park. Tucked in between Arenal’s volcanic ranges and the Tilarán mountains, this family-owned nature reserve offers an eco-friendly and accessible way to view Costa Rica’s amazing biodiversity. Trek along forested paths and hanging walkways with a naturalist guide as you look for a wide variety of local and migratory birds. Visit in the wintertime to catch sight of the many birds of prey that migrate through this wildlife-rich corridor.
What to Expect
In the reserve you can observe species of birds from the highest part of the forest as well as inshore species that inhabit trees present as West Indian mahogany (Swietenia mahagoni, Maquenque and golden fruit).
Mistico Arenal Hanging Bridges Park is an ideal place for trekking for bird watching and the preference of the guides specialists of the area to carry out observations and successfully count species of both local and migratory birds. The excellent visibility from the bridges also allows you to appreciate the massive migrations of birds of prey between November and February of each year.

A Fun Outing in the Rainforest

This tour is well worth your time. Arrange a private tour (maybe through your hotel as we did) with a guide if possible as they'll bring a spotting scope and can take pictures with your cell phone through the scope. The tour walks you on...More
