Panama vs. Costa Rica


We are going to visit Central America for the first time (having visited Ecuador recently as first neotropical country) on an independent birding trip. The decision is whether to head for Costa Rica or for Panama.

Main aspects are:
  • quality of birding and quantity of birds to be seen
  • best season (two weeks in Feb/Mar)
  • birding infrastructure (information on birding spots, trails, Feeders, field guides, local guides)
  • ease of travelling (rental car or public transports and camionetas/taxis).
  • safety
  • costs
  • variety of landscapes

Any recommendations?

Since I have posted this to the Costa Rica forum, too, please place your answers there.
