Created: 16 February 2014 talks up our Costa Rica Ultimate Wildlife Eco-tour

We're thrilled to receive yet another accolade for our multiple-award-winning Costa Rica Ultimate Wildlife eco-tour, this time from Space is still available for the peak of the dry season this March and April, as well as July's "Veranito" (little summer) season, two of the best times of year for wildlife viewing.

Costa Rica Ultimate Wildlife Eco-tour Remaining Available departures:
Mar 1, Mar 29, Apr 12, Apr 19, Jun 28, July 5, July 12, July 26. 9-days $3,098, 10 days $3,598,14-days $4,798, all inclusive except air.

March and April are the best times to see cats such as jaguar, puma, jagurundi, margay, ocelot and more, who are more exposed as the dryer conditions force them to travel greater distances in search of food and water. It's also an excellent time to see newborn young, as well as the nesting of the Resplendent Quetzal in the cloudforest. July, of course, is one of the best times for wildlife viewing. The early rains of May and June cause an eruption of flowering trees and fruits, which attract large numbers of animals. In July, the rains taper off in a month-long phenomenon called veranito (little summer), with cooler temperatures that cause wildlife to be more active and visible. We tend to see greater numbers of wildlife and more rare and endangered species in July than any other time of year.
