Mario Cordoba is a brilliant guide and trip co-ordinator. He effortlessly (seemingly!) navigates remote habitats to show participants a huge variety of birds. He clearly explains to participants what species frequent different elevations and different habitats. He has a great command of the natural history, geography, and wildlife of Costa Rica. He is warm and witty, and very patient with making sure all participants are able to see species. He knows the best out-of-the-way restaurants and finds great accommodations for tours. We have been on three tours with him, and I would not hesitate to take more!

I have been on at least six tours with Mario Cordoba from Crescentia, to include Costa Rica and Panama. The experiences can be customized to you and your group's needs - and when on tour, there is enough flexibility that you get to experience the local culture and food as well. Mario is an excellent bird guide -- always birding and he knows where to find the specialties! He speaks excellent English and easily creates a relaxed atmosphere while traveling. I will use Crescentia and Mario for future trips to Central & South America (he leads trips to Ecuador as well)

Mario Córdoba is a great birding guide. He knows the birdlife, geography and history of Costa Rica like the back of his hand. Our two tours (so far) with Crescentia Expeditions have been well designed to show us the varied habitats, help us find the huge variety of birds, and stay in comfortable lodges throughout Costa Rica. Mario is comfortable leading the most gung-ho 24/7 birders and also the less enthusiastic and/or slower who need help finding the birds. Birders who travel with Crescentia Expeditions are sure to see the most birds, travel in comfort, eat well (probably too well), and have a great time.

Crescentia Expeditions, with Mario Cordoba at the helm, is Costa Rica's primo birding and wildlife guide service. I just completed a 16 day field trip, custom designed for ten birding enthusiasts wanting to see as many different species of birds as possible. We were rewarded beyond all expectations. With Mario Cordoba as our guide, we were able to find and identify more than half of the bird species in Costa Rica. Our trip was expertly designed for exploring many of the prime birding hot spots and natural attractions around central Costa Rica, as well as lesser known unique and productive locations Mario knew from his vast experience. Transportation by small bus was very efficient and comfortable. The lodgings were all quite lovely and the meals always delicious. Mario Cordoba is an excellent field guide. His ability to find the birds was astonishing; his knowledge of the flora and fauna and the history of Costa Rica also quite impressive. He led our small group of visitors with skill and grace, keeping all of us content and happy. I can't wait until my next trip with Crescentia Expeditions!

Mario Córdoba is the best birding guide you could ever want. Our group spent 16 days following Mario’s lead as he took us from the mountain highlands to the coastal rainforests, finding more than half the birds listed on eBird for Costa Rica. Not only did he take us to well known hotspots, but also to little known locations he has found through his extensive contacts throughout the country. His lodging and dining choices were great—comfortable beds and delicious meals. During drives between our daylong birding forays, Mario provided interesting information on Costa Rican bird life and more. He was knowledgeable, articulate, attentive, and caring. He worked hard not only to find birds for us and to identify the birds we found, but also to make sure every one of us saw the birds well. His knowledge and expertise was a great advantage for all of us. He told us about the ongoing efforts for bird conservation, and we met several of the people involved with this important work. He’s a great guide and a terrific human being. I highly recommend Crescentia Expeditions birding tours.
