Notes From Puerto Viejo De Talamanca
The community of Tortuguero is having its Carnival Nov. 4 to 7, with parades, live music, a mechanical bull, Caribbean food, crowning of the Queen of Tortuguero, fireworks and sports competitions. For information, call 2709-8095, or contact the Talamancan Association of Ecotourism and Conservation (ATEC) for help arranging transportation and lodging.
ATEC’s community spotlight program continues to encourage neighbors to get to know each other. Next up is the Bribrí Kéköldi Indigenous Territory for the annual raptor migration. The Talamanca canton has been recognized as a key site to track and study raptor migration, which takes place August to December, with October the peak observation period. Between 50,000 and 500,000 birds of prey, of as many as 17 species, pass by the Kéköldi observation towers in just one day. A trained ornithologist guide takes visitors on a hike to learn about the bird count and tagging program. ATEC’s trip is set for Oct. 27; e-mail atec email@example.com to sign up.
