Destinations: Costa Rican Bird Route - Costa Rica
The Costa Rican Bird Route is a bird-oriented eco-tourism destination. Located in north-east Costa Rica, it was the first project of its kind in all Central America and offers a great variety of birding and wildlife-watching opportunities. The actual route consists of 13 nature reserves within 12 official sites, specifically chosen for their high diversity of birds. The region is also the last remaining habitat of the endangered Great Green Macaw Ara ambigua and is thus the best place anywhere to see this wonderful but rare bird. By visiting the CRBR you are supporting conservation efforts in a region under threat. The CRBR is run by the Rain Forest Biodiversity Group. Check out their website where you will find all you need to know about this dedicated group of conservation, their work and also much to help you plan a trip to Costa Rica.
