Off season packages are pretty reasonably priced. Whether or not it is an option for you I can't say but they are a great option, in general, for folks who want to see a lot of birds in the tropics and not deal with logistics.
I'll definately be visiting Panama one year either independently or on a bird tour.

Regards Costa Rica I've gone for the lazy option and booked a package deal in Guanacaste. I just couldn't face car hire, a three or four hour bus journey or an expensive cab ride. The hotel is surrounded by plenty of inviting habitat that I can happily wander around in plus I will be looking to book two or three day trips to the hotspots.

Thanks for all your suggestions.
You better stop dreaming of the quiet life because it's one you'll never know!
