Costa Rica is home to nearly 250 species of mammal. Medium-sized forest-dwelling mammals are often the most appreciated mammalian fauna of the country.
These include four species of monkeys such as the frantic white-headed capuchin and noisy mantled howlers; two species of sloths; the opportunistic white-nosed coati; and the fierce predator, the tayra. 894 bird species have been recorded in Costa Rica, more than all of the United States and Canada combined.
There are several ways to observe wildlife in Costa Rica. Hiking of course is the cheapest, two other ways are horseback riding & ATV’s. By far the most popular and most successful way is by boat floating or motoring down the rivers with a naturalist guide.
