The day begins with a scenic drive through the 50,000-hectare Braulio Carrillo National Park. Along the way, the guide will give you an overview of the tour. The first stop? The beautiful Danta Reserve, which lies on the lowlands of the National Park. Cement trails are perfect for a leisurely hike after an outdoor breakfast. Then it's on to Puerto Viejo of Sarapiqui.

Chances are you'll catch a glimpse of the most common birds found here, which include kingfishers, toucans, ibises and colorful and loud oropendolas. There's also a good chance of sneaking a peek at the endangered Great Green Macaw in amongst the tall trees, entwined with lianas and laden with bromeliads and orchids.
