Birding in the area

We offer you exceptional birdwatching at Casitas Tenorio B&B and in the area.


For those less familiar with neotropical bird life, Toucans, Aracaris, Tanagers and Honeycreepers, many of them brightly colored, may be seen around the Casitas Tenorio premises, especially at breakfast when a steady stream normally visits the fruit put out for them. For the more experienced birder, Bijagua is the place to see Tody Motmot and Rufous-vented Ground-Cuckoo, though neither of these birds is easily seen, and the latter is distinctly seasonal and highly dependent on the presence of army ant swarms. These birds are found in primary rainforest located about 800m from Casitas Tenorio. Donald has worked for many years as a birding guide. Please contact us for more details about his guiding services.
