This is a query for the birders out there. We are a family party of 6 travelling out from the UK for 2 weeks on 15th Aug. Myself, my two sons and older son's fiance are keen birders. My wife and daughter enjoy wildlife but in a more relaxed way (ie from the side of a pool or on a beach).
We are staying 3 nights at Xandari with one day at La Paz and Poas Volcano, 3 nights at Savegre Mountain Hotel and then a week in Manuel Antonio. Hopefully we will achieve a balance between everyone's wants.
Trips arranged from MA are of course the park, then Carara and the Damas Mangrove boat trip. we will also include some independent birding.
Now I'm much too mature to get involved in competitive birding ;) but as this will probably be a once in a lifetime visit we are keen to make the most of our time.
So, how many species are realistically achievable given time of year and itinerary? Any additional tips would be appreciated.
This is a family holiday, hence we have limited the travelling within the country.
I will of course let you know later how we actually got on.
