Birding Site Guide

Rincon is fairly easily reached by bus from San Jose or Puerto Jimenez. It is about 1 hour from the latter and 4 buses leave every day (2 early morning, 2 afternoon). The bus passes Cabinas Golfo Dulce which has basic rooms ($20). The manageress can also cook meals on request. The main reason for coming here was to look for the Mangrove Hummingbird which I found next to the mangroves behind the cabins. It is possible to walk/wade along the mangroves depending on the tide. Canoes can also be rented. I didn't see the Yellow-billed Cotinga which is apparently found in the area. I saw 63 species including 2 lifers.
