A couple more new additions to the Tico Tours itineraries.
Panama is an amazing country with a whole host of species - set in some breathtaking scenery with some incredible rainforest and great accommodations - such as Canopy Tower where you are right in amongst all the action. The country is crawling with Hummingbirds, Tanagers, Ovenbirds and Antbirds, Trogons, Parrots and Flycatchers and is a must see.
Trinidad and Tobago is the perfect introduction to the Neotropics with a large number of species possible in a 10-14 day trip - yet not in the numbers that you may find in central/southern America, so not too overwhelming for the first time visitor. Who can resist Oilbird, Ornate Hawk-Eagle, White-bearded Manakin, Bearded Bellbird, Scarlet Ibis.... amongst examples of the hummingbird, tanager, ovenbird, antbird, trogon, toucan, woodcreeper, flycather and other families.. Luckily Trinidad and Tobago also have some great birding lodges which make birding over here nice and comfortable too.
