Bird Watching Groups
Mareas is graced with bounteous natural beauty and tranquility; home to 310 species of birds which can be spotted in our refuge and surrounding habitats. Our reforestation practices have conserved a diverse natural habitat that has attracted many birds, mammals, insects and reptiles that have found a sanctuary here for feeding and reproduction.
Costa Rica is home to more avian species than the United States and Canada combined. In fact, the country's bird populations account for more than 10% of the world's total bird species. Of these, more than 630 are permanent residents, while others are migratory visitors that live here only part of the year.
Bird watchers should know that Costa Rica is divided into four general avifaunal zones: the north Pacific lowlands, the south Pacific lowlands, the Caribbean lowlands and the interior highlands. Cocos Island accounts for a fifth zone, though it is not often included because of the difficulty in reaching the island. Each zone offers distinct bird populations, so countrywide travel is a great opportunity to sample the diversity of Costa Rica's birds.
Mareas invites you to explore our very own Wildlife Preserve consisting of private nature trails right outside your suite leading you to four waterfalls and the forest canopy giving you the opportunity to observe a great number of species of birds maximizing your birding experience.
It’s proximity the Ballena Marine National Park and Sierpe Mangroves ( Largest in Central America ) will offer you a wide variety of environments to explore.
