Half Day Itinerary: Departure time: 5:30 am
Return time: 11:30 am Duration: 6 hours
Trails: Meandrica, Universal, Quebrada Bonita and Araceas. (the order of hiking the trails may vary)
 There are two half day options; it will depend on what species from our Carara National Park list is on your mind. The order of trail/activity will vary upon request. But here is a sample: Starting at the Meandrica's trail, early in the morning with breakfast on the go. The trail is a complex variety of forest ranging from old secondary to abandoned pasture fields, which enhances our possibilities of a larger number of species and families.
The highlights on this trail are many, but some of the species are: Royal Flycather, Fiery Billed Aracari, Antbirds, 5 species of Trogons, Black Bellied Wren, Boat Billed Heron, Yellow Billed Cotinga and hundreds more... Or a hike to old grown forest on a system of 3 interconnected trails with numerous new species such as: Great Tinamou, Ruddy Quail Dove, Golden Crowned Spadebill, Orange Collared, Blue Crowned, Red Capped, Thrushlike Manakins, more Trogons and antbirds like Streaked Chested Antpitta, Black Faced Antrush and the list goes on. A great trail for endemics.
