TRIP TO SANTA ROSA NATIONAL PARK & CURUBANDA LODGE PRIVATE PRESERVE, GUANACASTE, COSTA RICA
This past Saturday we went on a birding trip to the tropical dry forest in Santa Rosa National Park and the rain forest in the private preserve of Curubanda Lodge. We were picked up by our local birding guide Carlos Bello of Green Life Tours at 5 am and returned to the hotel at 5:30 pm. We stopped for breakfast on the way to Santa Rosa National Park and had lunch at the Curubanda Lodge. Both meals were great.
Carlos is a great birding guide. On the way to and from the park and the lodge he spotted many birds and we stopped to see and photograph them. In addition to the birds, the scenery was great. We highly recommend Carlos as a birding guide.
On the way to Santa Rosa National Park we could see sunrise (the first photo). Our first stop in the park was a great view of the tropical dry forest.
