What is a Tolomuco?

Bosque translates to Forest, so what does Tolomuco mean? A Tolomuco is a brown to black fox-sized mammal. It has a long and bushy tail with a light grayish head which is in contrast to the dark brown body. Tolomuco is the common name in Costa Rica. However, it is also known as a Tayra and is a member of the weasel family found in Canada and the Northern United States. It inhabits dry forests of Guanacaste, as well as wet lowland forests of the Caribbean and Southern Pacific slopes, and higher altitudes in Costa Rica.

Birding in the Southern Zone

Bosque del Tolomuco offers various well-maintained trails allowing you to go for an easy hike and enjoy the different bird species. From Black Guans, Silver-throated Tanagers, and Blue-crowned Motmots, to Slate-throated Redstarts and even Red-fronted Parrolets, the grounds offer a lot of Birding opportunities. This region also provides you with possibilities to spot the Fiery-Billed Aracari, the Ornate Hawk-Eagle, and even the elusive Resplendent Quetzal to top off your perfect Birding Vacation to Costa Rica.
