The entire Rio San Juan area  is a wetland of international importance under the RAMSAR convention. Over 400 species of birds have been reported in studies of the area.


Obviously birdwatching is all around, but we suggest these specific sites:


* From the deck and miradors of La Esquina del Lago overlooking 20 acres of protected wetlands, one can view many species ( 64... so far has been identified December 2010 )  including waders, hummingbirds, flycatchers and warblers.


*  Along Rio Frio and nearby ponds of Los Guatuzos


* On Rio San Juan: Isla del Pitazo, Rio Pocosol, and small wetlands.


* In nearby wildlife reserves of Los Guatuzos, Medio Queso, Cano Negro, and Indio Mais.


* In the Solentiname Archipelago: Islas Zapote, Mancaron, La Venada and San Fernando.
