Costarican's review

I was there couple of days ago with the Association of Ornithology of Costa Rica. Both birding and helping the new comers to id birds; although I have been many times before, I have not been as successful at birding as this visit, when I recorded over 190 species. The place offers good food and very nice staff, the rate is the best you can get anywhere is $60 per night a person, including meals, taxes and round trip boat shuttle from Pavona's Town near Guapiles-Cariari area. The boat drivers are keen on finding rare birds because they know where.
