Wildlife Experiences

The months of May to November is a magical time in Costa Rica.

At the Kura, and The Cayuga Collection of Hotels, we call this Wildlife Season.

That incredible time of year when the rainforest is at its most abundant and green. Rivers are flowing and full of life. And it’s your best time for witnessing one-of-a-kind, wildlife experiences:

Turtles nest their eggs on the beach, and turtle babies make their way towards the ocean…

Humpback whales migrate from both northern and southern hemispheres to meet in our warm waters …

Sloths high in the treetops eat fresh leaves and teach their young how to be … sloths.

At Kura and The Cayuga Collection of Hotels, our Expert Guides — and signature tours — will help you check off all your bucket-list wildlife experiences.

This is THE time to visit Costa Rica.
