LEARN ABOUT ESQUIPULAS AND THE RARE SPECIES THERE
Esquipulas is a small country town located 35-45min East of Manuel Antonio, located in the foothills of the Central Pacific, at approx 380 meters above sea level and with an excellent number of endemic species found only in the Southeast of Costa Rica and Western Panama.
El Rey is located roughly 10km south of Quepos, the rice fields and marshy conditions plus the location of the place between large oil-palm plantations makes El Rey an important stop site for many migrant birds during both northern and southern migrations.
It is excellent for the typical waterbirds including herons and egrets, storks and roseate spoonbills, kingfishers but also other species associated to the habitat, including scrub greenlet, seedeaters, blue-ground dove, some hawks, and warblers.
