Bird watching in Nicaragua is very rewarding for those birding enthusiasts who love tropical birds and want to visit someplace authentic. Birding Nicaragua is a program that features the superb tropical dry forest private nature reserve of Montibelli and the northern cloud forest private reserve of El Jaguar. Both reserves afford easy access to numerous species unique to the region. We also visit the El Chocoyero wildlife refuge, Lake Apanás and Selva Negra private reserve on this trip.
