The 2019 SAVE THE FROGS! Costa Rica Ecotour

We invite you to join the 2019 SAVE THE FROGS! Costa Rica Ecotour (June 27th to July 8th, 2019), which will encompass the rainforest, cloud forest, volcanoes and an abundance of opportunities to find and photograph amphibians. Costa Rica has an incredible array of biodiversity, landscapes and ecosystems. Costa Rica is home to 208 known amphibian species, all within a very small geographical area. There are lots of frogs to be found, making Costa Rica a perfect place for a SAVE THE FROGS! Ecotour.

The tour was the best trip ever! A magical combination of smart, knowledgeable, warm, caring people and the most amazing wildlife, terrain, culture, and adventures. I would love to go again!
–Ann Sigafoos, Virginia
