Ferrugivous Pigmy Owl

Ferrugivous Pigmy Owl

For this Ferrugivous Pigmy Owl our Costa Rica Sun Tours lush gardens had been his sanctuary. Alex Arias, our top photographer at the office got some great shots and our staff was getting familiarized with the visits. Two days ago, we had a very unfortunate turn of events, where some of our staff who saw it all happen, evidenced that our neighbors cat, also noticed the owls continuous presence and decided to go for him. The cat amazingly got the bird and killed it. This is a reminder that Costa Rica’s flora and fauna are very present in our every day lives, we just have to keep a good look at it at all times!

Sustainable Tourism

We are once again proud to announce that we have been certified with 4 leaves by the ICT and the Sustainable Tourism Committee, revalidating the same category we had obtained 3 years ago when we were one of the first seven Tour Operators to be certified. As the certification program has grown and more Operators have gone through the process, the standards are continuously raised, which gives even greater value to the high marks obtained. We will continue to put our best effort forward towards operating and teaching our guests about sustainable travel practices.
