Welcome to Raptor Ridge

Raptor Ridge is a unique birding and nature destination located on Costa Rica's wild Nicoya Peninsula. At an elevation of 1400 feet, the location offers a spectacular view of the Pacific Ocean and surrounding forest. The name "Raptor Ridge" comes from the abundance of soaring birds that fly endlessly on the warm air currents overhead and below. Set in a tropical paradise of lush vegetation and a wealth wildlife, Raptor Ridge is a unique natural retreat like nowhere else in Costa Rica.

Thank you so much for your generous hospitality. The stay was wonderful. You made us feel very welcome.

A few years ago I learned a new saying, “pura vida”. Now I understand the true meaning of this saying. Thank you so much for sharing your home and Costa Rica with Jan and me…Curu, Tambor, Montezuma, Cabuya,Santa Tersea, the monkeys, birds and great eats. Memories to last forever.

Forget “Paradise Lost”, I just discovered “Paradise Found”. Thank you so much for your gracious hospitality – an excellent birding experience, wonderful food and meeting new friends. It doesn’t get any better than this.
