Wildlife is abundant here at Agua Vista. Proximity to the river and the protected land surrounding it and
our location in the corridor between Curu Reserva and the Cabo Blanco Absolute Reserve ensure a thriving community of mammals, reptiles, amphibians, and birds. Though abundant year round, the best months of year to see wildlife are September - December. Wildlife not featured below, but observed here:

Kinkajous, Ocelot, Racoons, Jaguarundi, Squirrels, Armadillo, Anteater, White-tailed Deer, Opossum, Tanager, Magpie Jay, Oriole, Long-tailed Manakin, Woodpecker, Trogon, Hummingbirds, Owl, Parrots, Curassow, Heron, Geckos, Snakes, Leaf-litter Frogs, an enormous amount of butterflies...

Download a list of birds sighted by one of our bird enthusiast guests in May 2010 at Agua Vista. The ones highlighted in green were observed. The ones with a corresponding black box are known to reside in the Nicoya Peninsula. Most of the birds not observed are either coastal (and may be seen in Cabo Blanco or by the ocean) or migratory.
