Costa Rica Focus

About Us

We want you to travel the way you want to travel. It’s your vacation and we’re your personal guides, helping you maneuver through all the information and choices that will come your way as you begin researching your vacation destination.

It’s easy for us to relate to your travel needs because we’ve traveled just like you have. We’ve gone solo to new countries, been on romantic get-a-ways with our loved one, dragged our kids through airports, laughed with our friends trying crazy new cuisine, in short, we can help you, because we are YOU.

Eighteen years ago Costa Rica Focus was conceived. The core idea was formed; friendly travel planning service, from local experts who live, work and play in the destinations we promote to our customers.

Whether you’re looking for an intense birding adventure, life list in hand, or just want to be immersed in the sites and sounds of Costa Rica (or Central America), Costa Rica Focus is here to help.

Let’s talk about your vacation!

Customer Reviews

I first met Rudy Zamora on a bird watching trip to Costa Rica sponsored by the Morris Arboretum in February 2010. I was immediately impressed with his knowledge of his country’s culture, history and of course, birds. As a guide, he was simply amazing! We spotted over 200 species of birds as well as countless mammals and plant species but most importantly, Rudy made every single person in our group feel welcome and special. It was the most amazing week of my life. Since that time, I have been back to Costa Rica 7 times, and have led 4 of my own bird watching groups down to Costa Rica with Rudy as our guide. His humor, compassion, knowledge and love of the natural world draws people in and allows them to experience their own “trip of a lifetime.” I have nothing but praise for Rudy and his company and can say without hesitation that you will never be disappointed.

Rudy is the best guide we have ever had on any of our birding trips. No one surpasses his knowledge of the natural environment, wildlife and birds of Costa Rica. But even more, Rudy is a wonderful person. He is friendly and cares deeply about the people he leads on his trips, accommodating their every need. We have been so impressed with Rudy’s abilities that we have gone on four Costa Rican birding trips with him. He is also an excellent pianist and will play for you if you happen to be staying in a lodge where there is a piano such as at Monte Verde

I have been on 3 guided bird tours in Costa Rica (2014, 2015 and 2017), guided by Rudy Zamora of Costa Rica Focus and I only have full confidence and praise for him. Whenever I speak about my birding adventures to Costa Rica, I ALWAYS advise any interested parties to contact Rudy for a truly wonderful wildlife experience. Not only is Rudy exceedingly competent to find the birds, identify them by sight and sound, talk about their habitat and life cycles, but he can also talk about the ecology of the rain forest or cloud forests or grasslands, plants, other wildlife, culture, history, astronomy…I consider him a true Renaissance Man. Rudy’s enthusiasm is contagious and excites us all on his safaris with our latest discoveries. He is also a perfect gentleman and a pleasure to call an amigo as well as a guide.
