Paracrane Wildlife Adventure Tours to Costa Rica and Belize
My specialty for the past 20 years has been leading paragliding tours to Costa Rica, Brazil and Europe. I have also led birdwatching tours to Costa Rica, and often get requests for information on where to go for non-flying activities. My undergraduate major was Biology specializing in Environmental Education. I taught for the Mass Audubon Society and the National Wildlife Federation. I've explored many of the National Parks and private wildlife reserves in Costa Rica for over 20 years and recorded over 450 birds in Costa Rica. I've visited Belize and eastern Guatemala numerous times exploring the natural history there.

I am excited to be offering custom tours to Costa Rica and to Belize in 2023 with a focus on the natural history and birding in these amazing countries. These two small countries each have amazing biological diversity, good infrastructure, peaceful friendly populations, diverse cultures and easy travel from the US and Canada.

We will sculpt a custom tour for your small group, family or even an individual.
We'll explore the amazingly diverse natural history of Costa Rica. You will avoid the crowds and maximize wildlife sitings. Highlights include Resplendent Quetzals, Scarlet and Great Green Macaws, close to 900 species of birds, 2 species of sloths, 4 species of monkeys and 6 species of cats (I've had a few rare but treasured sitings). Other options include surf lessons, bicycle rental, horseback riding in the jungle or on a beach. There is class 5 river rafting or mellow ocean kayaking. We know where to get the best seared tuna dinner, coffee tours, whale watching and snorkeling tours. We know relaxed beaches to chill on and the best places to go zip lining. You can see sloths, butterflies, birds, monkeys, crocodiles, or brush up on your Spanish during your tour. Check out the gallery of Costa Rica Wildlife here!

Belize has world class Mayan ruins, extensive and accessible coral reefs, diverse ecosystems. Some of my favorite areas include Crooked Tree, where you can see Jabiru Storks and Agami Herons, Yellow headed Vultures and Black-Collared Hawks. A side trip to Tikal in Guatemala includes world class birding in extensive jungle with Mayan ruins, Ocellated Turkeys and Orange-breasted Falcons. Belize is home to Spider and Howler monkeys, and 5 species of wild cats. You can also hike, river raft, dive, snorkel and chill on the beach! Check pictures of Belize Wildlife here!
