Bird watching on the Osa Peninsula in Costa Rica

Lapa Rios Eco Lodge is one of Central America’s top birding destinations. Nestled in more than a 1,000 acres of primary and old re-growth rain forest, Lapa Rios has recorded more than 325 bird species from varied ecosystems at our Golfo Dulce-Pacific beaches up to the 350 mts. (1,150 ft.) primary forest covered Osa Peinsula hilltops, and along river crossings and nearby grassy fields.

Could we deliver your early morning coffee or tea to your bungalow so you could watch Bright-rumped Atillas play off your deck? Come witness raucous pairs of Scarlet Macaws stream by in the early dawn light, or site the Osa-endemic Black-cheeked Ant-Tanager for the first time. We highly recommend our on-property EARLY BIRD TOUR with one of our experienced GUIDES. Check out some of the birds you can see on our BIRD LIST. Most first time Costa Rican visitors should see or hear more than 100 new birds species during a 4-5 day Lapa Rios experience!
