The northern stretch of Costa Rica’s Caribbean coast is one of the most important nesting and breeding sites of this wonderful but endangered creature.

Costa Rica is also one of the countries with the hugest variety of bird species and with many on show in Tortuguero National Park all year round, vacations to Mawamba Lodge are ideal for anyone with avian interests.
