Finca Filadelfia biomes are divided into shade-grown coffee forest, dry forest, pine-oak forest and cloud forest. The highest part of the estate is known as cloud forest and this is where the tour begins. You descend by wide and paved trails through the dense natural forest vegetation where “aguacatillo” and oak predominate. In this area, we have seen endemic species to the region as Hummingbirds, Warblers, Trogons, sparrows, thrushes, etc. Going further, the most common and special birds to see are Blue-throated Motmot, Bar-winged Oriole, Emerald Toucanet, Lesser RoadRunner, Occelated Quail, Resplendent Quetzal, Black-throated Jay, Mottled Owl, etc. The pure, natural and safe environment makes this trip an extraordinary experience for birdwatchers, who have seen over 200 species of birds and up to 80 in the time covered by the tour. Depending on the time of day, you may spot diurnal or nocturnal birds. The tour begins in the center of the Finca, when trucks will then take you to cloud forest where you will hike to the highest point of the mountain, known as La Rueda.
