Costa Rica Wildlife Photo Tours with Max Waugh
A Unique Opportunity to Photograph the Osa Peninsula and Corcovado National Park
We led two Costa Rica tours in 2013. Thanks to some great clients and fantastic wildlife encounters, both tours were a success! Read more about them and see client feedback on the Tour Reports page.

Our 2014 tour, Quetzals to Corcovado, first takes us high up into the cloud forest to search for the resplendent quetzal, one of the world's most spectacular birds. The second half of the tour is devoted to the Pacific coastal lowlands, a hotspot for biodiversity. The optional extension takes us into Corcovado National Park, the best spot in the country for wildlife. Read more about the 2014 tour itinerary, optional extensions and prices.
What really makes ours tours special is the opportunity to stay in the heart of Corcovado! Corcovado is home to an incredible amount of biodiversity and offers great opportunities to see all sorts of wildlife, including all four of Costa Rica's monkey species, colorful birds (Corcovado has the larget remaining population of scarlet macaws in Central America) and a variety of reptiles and amphibians. The center of the park is one of the best places to spot the Baird's tapir, as well as the elusive puma and other wild cats.
About the Costa Rica Photo TourThink of this tour as a Costa Rica photo adventure rather than a hard-core photography workshop. We emphasize the fun of exploration and discovery that comes with photographing the wildlife of this magical country. This tour is perfect for those who want to get out and explore the rainforest environment rather than sit around at feeders and "setups."
A veteran of several photography trips to Costa Rica, Max takes you to some of his favorite wildlife hotspots, culminating in a possible stay inside Corcovado. He'll be there to offer tips and advice for shooting in the challenging rainforest environment. We don't emphasize classroom work or tutorials, but there will be plenty of opportunities for getting hands-on instruction and sharing your work during our informal critique sessions.
Our Corcovado extension includes the services of one of Costa Rica's top guides, who will help us track and find wildlife. He is a native of the Osa Peninsula considered one of the top wildlife trackers in the world.
To ensure that your trip is in good hands, all of your tour arrangments will be handled by Costa Rica Expeditions, the country's leading adventure tour planner for over 30 years.
