These amazing and beautiful birds are almost gone from Costa Rica but with the help of this breeding and release program the Scarlet Macaw is being reintroduced to the Nicoya peninsula and is making a come back in the South Caribbean coast of Costa Rica.

Tours of this wonderful project happen daily at 4pm. 

You are asked to be on site by 3:45pm at the latestet where you will be introduced to your volunteer guide who will show you the facility, give a talk about the Macaws, the breeding program, habitats, habits and happily answer all your queston. Food samples, nest boxes and information are on display. You will be introduced to breeding birds (when on display) and witness the feeding of the wild Macaws that have been released back into nature that come back for a visit. Make sure you have your camera ready.

The program started with 2 birds in 1992. Macaws have been released in the Punta Islita area since 2013. Scarlets Macaws were spotted in Carrillo in 2015 so keep your eyes open. With the planting of many hundred almond trees in the Samara area we hope it will soon be common to see these magnificant birds over head over the next few years.

So when you are in the Samara and Carrillo please make the time to visit and support these birds and their return.
