birding tours reviews

My husband and I traveled to Costa Rica for the first time in 2017 on a birdwatching trip with friends. Rudy was our birding guide.

We were new to the entire experience while others were well educated and experienced. Rudy adapted effortlessly. His accumulated knowledge as a naturalist and lifetime of experience allowed him to make us feel comfortable, while also feeding my keen interest in Costa Rican flora along the way.

Thank you, Rudy

Rudy is the best birding guide we have ever had on any of our birding tours. No one surpasses his knowledge of the natural environment, wildlife, and birds of Costa Rica. But even more, Rudy is a wonderful person. He is friendly and cares deeply about the people he leads on his trips, accommodating their every need.

We have been so impressed with Rudy’s abilities that we have gone on four Costa Rican birdwatching tours with him. He is also an excellent pianist and will play for you if you happen to be staying in a lodge where there is a piano such as at Monte Verde.

I first met Rudy Zamora on a bird watching trip to Costa Rica in February 2010. I was immediately impressed with his knowledge of his country’s culture, history and of course, birds. As a guide, he was simply amazing! We spotted over 200 species of birds as well as countless mammals and plant species but most importantly, Rudy made every single person in our group feel welcome and special.

Since that time, I have been back to Costa Rica 7 times and have led 4 of my own bird watching journeys down to Costa Rica with Rudy as our birding guide.
