Villas Pico Bonito

Villas Pico Bonito, Jungle Eco Lodge. A hidden paradise in Pico Bonito National Park. Featuring self contained lodges on the banks of the Rio Cangrejal. Beautiful infinity pool with views of the Waterfall and Jungle cliffs. Hidden Paradise Bar and Grill. Wireless internet in certain Lodges and public areas. Great hiking in park, mountain biking, white water rafting and zip lining. We are just a short ride to the Bay Island ferries. A splendid holiday destination.

Welcome to our birding page. Here we will endeavor to show you some of the birds of Villas Pico Bonito. The list of birds is still relatively short. I have added some of the photos (amateur!) that I have taken around the Villas and Gardens. We offer experienced and well equipped birding guides Spanish and or English speaking  to help plan your day.

 Birders Guide

We have just started to build a list of birds that have been seen here at Villas Pico Bonito.  The View Deck is a very popular spot for Birders to check out the surrounding area.  This list was compiled by Gary Knowleton in a couple of days of watching.  My thanks to him and his brother Del and many more travelers such as Linda and Jerry Kruth that have been here and have got us interested in the amazing participatory sport of Bird Watching.
